Indian - anything tomatoey not creamy, no extras like naan bread or samasoas
Chinese - boiled rice instead of egg fried rice, something like chicken and rice maybe

enjoy smile

Indian Takeaway:Tandoori chicken - chicken tikka without sauce.Not a creamy sauce like chicken tikka masala or chicken korma - if sauce get tomato based.No naan bread or poppadoms just plain rice.

Chinese Takeaway:Stir fry of chicken and veg.King prawn and steamed vegetables.Chow mein.No sticky sauces or prawn balls.Again plain (not special fried) rice.

I had a lovely low fat indian takeaway last week, I had tandoori chicken (so no sauce), plain boiled rice and a side order of sag aloo (boiled potatoes with spinach)
It was delicious!

I would second the tandoori chicken, or just get pieces of chicken tikka if you don't like taking meat off the bone. I used to it quite often when doing weightwatchers.

I asked the takeaway to take the meat off the bone - they did, no problems smile

Chicken shaslik (spelt something like that)

Chicken Balti is supposed to be pretty low fat too.

sorry i had to go ! Thank you for replies can't believe i am panicing about this!

They only do fried rice at my local chinese but thank you for suggestions, tandorri chicken just chicken and no sauce? IS it spicy? I am not really a fan of curry anyway tbh, i can manage a bhuna (sp?) but even thats a bit hit and miss!

On slimming world I had a beef chow mein every week cos that was the lowest in syns. It was 8.5 syns a couple of years ago.

MumOeufMonsters Fri 10-Apr-09 21:07:16

i would normally choose chicken chow mein tbh

Turkish. Have the chicken shish with rice and salad and low fat yogurt for sauce. Super yummy.
