View Full Version : What can I cook with Tandoori Chicken?
That isn't rice or potato based? I am on a low carb thing at the moment so can't have rice, potato, cous cous or anything like that but am geeting fed up with just plain veg has anyone got any ideas?
What about making daal (lentils).
Another thing we often have with curry is stirfried cauliflower/broccoli with cumin/garam/mustard seeds.
I was going to suggest cauliflower too. I even read a recipe once for a faux mashed potato dish that used cauliflower and butter and soy milk instead of potatoes!
How about aubergines? Sliced and fried or in a cassarole with other zucchini/squash and some tomatoes?

ooh that's a coincidence, the other day I saw a recipe that had a cauliflower, butter and milk *mash* as an alternative topping for shepherds pie!!
Anyway (if the weather EVER gets warmer :doh: ) how about a salad? Marinate thinly sliced onion in lemon juice (sounds mad but is truly lovely) and mix with chopped tomato, cucumber and loads of coriander. Plus a green salad. I would also make a dressing from yoghurt, garlic and mint. Yummy!!!
We had tandoori chicken last night with a huge green salad. We also had rice, but basmati brown rice, which is low GI, if that helps?
Sorry if you've heard this before elsewhere, but you can make a good rice substitute with cauliflower. Just either grate it, chop it up really small, or put it in a food processor, until you get rice-sized pieces. I then just microwave or boil it for a few minutes.
With a sauce you can hardly tell the difference.
Thanks for the inspiration, can't do cauli though devil food :no:
Pancake I have used brown basmati before and its OK but this week nd next I'm not even allowed that!
Kakinn that salad does sound nice might give that a go next week.
LPP might try the aubergine too but just enough for one DD & OH don't like it or courgette or squash :doh: just no pleasing some people!!
