emoticon for making your own curries.

We'll be having a few meals out in the next two weekends so I had a quick search for info on UK take-aways.

The food standards agency has some suggestions for choosing healthier options:

Yay - I found a couple of good articles on here (I am still finding my way around this huge site). Nothing much about UK Indian Restaurant meals - but I will keep on looking.

It is hard. But this will be another week without our regular takeaway - because I am going to make another curry recipe!

Maybe next week we will have a takeaway - but make our own rice and have a supermarket mini naan bread - saves calories!

There's lots of articles about dining out on the site. The one with suggestion for Indian cuisine is:

We also love curry and living in Leicester we have a very large selection of restaurants to choose from! Lots of temptation but we try to limit visits to special occasions emoticon

This is a great thread - does anyone have advice for pub lunches and Indian food??? I adore a good curry but other than making my own, how do I make a meal out healthier?

Thanks for the advice Lisa. I'll steer clear of the seaweed!! Hope you had a good birthday!

Does anyone know what sauces are best to avoid? A lot of them are heaped with calories which are unnecessary!

Well i have just got back from a chinese buffet, we went for my birthday.
Being veggie it is probably a bit easier, i went for plain boiled rice and then a mix of the different veggie dishes. I was naughty for my starter and had seaweed - lots of sugar, but them for desert i went for fruit. so whilst i may be a bit over on my calories - it wont be too bad and it is possible to diet and go out and have fun too!!!!!
HOpe you enjoy your meal.

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone had an advice for me regarding eating out with friends? I'm going to a Chinese all you can eat buffet with friends form work, and although I have the advantage of being able to control the portions I was wondering what type of things would be better to go for? I always try to eat the healthy options but when my friends are reaching for the dessert menu my will power is tested!! Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks, Laura xx
