Indian is one of the most popular takeaways, and I have made lot's of Indian recipes before, like the classic Chicken Tikka Masala, or Indian Fakeaway.

This is another version of a fakeaway, featuring Butter Chicken, Saag Aloo, and Samosas, all slimming friendly and super delicious!

Saag Aloo is a delicious spinach based dish made with potatoes as well. It's one of my favourite side dishes!

I also had a couple of wholemeal naans that needed using up, so synned accordingly. 

Butter chicken or Makhan murg is a dish of chicken in a mildly spiced tomato sauce, with butter in it. I marinate the chicken pieces overnight so that they are extra succulent.

The samosas are pretty easy to make, and will only cost a couple of syns each.

The perfect accompaniment for this dish:


Crucial yoghurt and mint 1L

Only 3 syns per tablespoon, and tastes just like an Indian takeaway sauce. It goes perfectly with the samosas!

You will need:

Low calorie cooking spray
250g Extra lean beef mince
1 tbsp mild curry powder
2 potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed up
handful of frozen peas
4 tbsp finely chopped coriander
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
Salt
3 jumbo filo pastry sheets

Method:

Spray a large non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. 

Add the curry powder, beef mince and peas and stir-fry for 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the chopped coriander and red chilli, season well with salt and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a large baking sheet with baking parchment. Place the three filo sheets on top of each other and cut them in half width ways. 

Cut each half into three even strips length ways to give you a total of six strips of filo per sheet (18 strips in total).

Lay the strips on a clean work surface and lightly spray with low calorie cooking spray. Place a teaspoon of the potato filling at the bottom of each strip and fold the pastry diagonally to enclose the filling and form a triangle.

Press down on the pastry and fold again until you reach the end of the strip leaving you with a triangular pastry parcel. Repeat with the remaining strips and filling to make 18 parcels.

Place the parcels in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, spray with low calorie cooking spray and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from the oven
