I want to make a curry on Saturday night and dh wants lamb. I have bought the lamb but have no idea how to proceed with the curry sauce etc so that I can eat it on the SW plan. I am one of these people who loves carbs and so always wants rice or pasta with my curry. If I was to have a green day could I use the lamb as a healthy extra B choice if I weigh it? Also how could I make the curry sauce?
Here - don't see why you couldn't substitute for lamb - sorry about typo's. I would think that the whole lot prob doesn't come to more than 5 syns if you count the oil as an extra.
