If you’re a regular follower of my blog you’ll know that I love a good curry, whether it’s down at a local curry house or making one from scratch at home! I’ve also been calorie counting over the past 6 weeks now which is slowly working for me in losing a little weight and maintaining it but still enjoying what I am eating and drinking.
How would you like to make and enjoy a little Indian feast for under 500 calories? This mini Indian Feast of Baked Chicken Pasanda Curry, Onion Bhajis and Sweet Potato Pakoras – recipes all from Pinch of Nom – are a fantastic way to enjoy a guilt free Fakeaway!
Granted the below will take quite a bit of prep with ingredients and timings however all 3 elements of the meal use up some of the same ingredients and all go into the oven, so it won’t cost you a fortune or require lots of pots and pans to make this mouth-watering meal.
Ingredients for all 3 parts of the dish (for 4 people);
- 500 g diced chicken breast
- 5 red onions
- 1 brown onion
- 1 spring onion
- 1 tsp mild curry powder
- 3 tsp ground coriander
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tbsp ground almonds
- 250 ml chicken stock (made with 1 chicken stock pot and 250ml of boiling water)
- 2 tbsp light cream cheese
- 1 tbsp flaked almonds
- 1.5 large sweet potatoes
- 2 eggs
- 1.5 tsp garam masala
- 0.5 tsp chilli powder
- salt and pepper to taste

Oh and if you were wondering where I got the Balti dishes from, these were from Asda and give that little extra to an indulgent homemade Fakeaway meal to be enjoyed at home 🙂
This really is a gorgeous little Indian Feast for all of the family to enjoy at home! Please give me your honest feedback on this and I hope that you love it.
