Chicken Rogan Josh Slimming Style

Chicken Rogan Josh, Slimming Style

I so needed another curry recipe to turn to on my Slimming journey. So I put my thinking cap on and my Chicken Rogan Josh, Slimming Style, was born!

A Rogan Josh (sometimes written as Roghan Josh) is based on a tomato theme, so I knew I could readily adapt it to be slimming friendly too. I’ve made this recipe for many years – not sure where it came from originally, but it’s been adapted many times by me. 

It’s less that 2 Syns per portion (big portion) AND if you use the 25g Ground almond as your Healthy A then it’s free! 

Here at Easy Peasy HQ the theme of all my recipes is easy! Tasty has to follow and family friendly is a must. 

 

So this Chicken Rogan Josh hits the spot – I promise 

It slightly more faffy that my very popular Chicken Curry Slimming style, but hey it’s not difficult! And it’s oh so good

About Rogan Josh Curries

Rogah Josh curries are aromatic and quite mild. Perfect for the whole family 

They are normally based on red meats such as lamb. And always on a tomato based sauce.

However I just love the versatility of chicken and it’s alway in my fridge. But you can switch it up by using lamb if you like…

 

Marinading your Chicken 

Chicken Rogan Josh, Slimming Style the chicken

 

Just mix your chicken pieces with Fat free yoghurt, ground almonds, garlic and salt & pepper and leave it in the fridge covered for  approx. 30-60 Minutes 

The Spices in your Chicken Rogan Josh

Blending spices is quite difficult so I’ve done it for us! See the recipe in the ingredients. 

My blend is

Garlic

Garam Marsala

Paprika

Ginger

Ground Cumin 

Curry Powder

All perfectly blended to give that lovely aromatic flavour 

 

I also have plenty of veggies in there too:  

Aubergine (also know as Egg Plant) 

Onions 

Red Pepper 

Tomatoes 

 

Chicken Rogan Josh, Slimming Style, the spices

 

To Serve your Chicken Rogan Josh 

I serve it with lovely Basmati Rice – simple …. yum 

I’ve also had it on a jacket potato – that was good too
