  • Vegetarian on a strict diet. Hmmmm. Intriguing Nope sorry, nothing. I did a web search, your pick of topics are "Vegetarian Curry" OR "Low Calorie Curry" - you can't have "Low Calorie Vegetarian Curry". I think the reason being is that vegetarian curries are low calorie - the nature of the beast - or the lack of any beasty bits (meat, lards, milk, cheese, blah). I spent a little while looking too, frankly your question is incredibly fascinating, to the point that I am bubbling over with questions and lots of comments. No we wont go there.
  • I think aloo prantha will not be a good option. Check this out: http://www.chiff.com/health/calories.htm http://www.weightlossresources.co.uk/calories/calorie_counter/indian_food.htm
  • Green leaf veg are going to be lower calorie than starchy foods like lentils, I think. Spinach or okra are probably your best bets. If you want to do a bombay aloo try and stick to baby potatoes because they have a lower GI than the larger ones, but keep away from the aloo paratha if it really has to include butter.
  • Just stay clear of the creams and cheeses in some of the dishes, and you will be fine. The problem with very strict dieting is that you don't give your body any flexibility while you diet, so at the end when you go back to your normal eating habits, you gain back the weight. At least that's the way it always was for me. The only way I have been able to lose weight and keep it off is to eat balanced, organic meals and keep exercising. I don't go to a gym, I exercise by walking to the stores and cleaning my home and just being active. I have lost 59 lbs this year, btw. :)
  • They have Vegetable curry, forgot what it's called though .. It's nice !
  • Hiya - sorry I saw your question so late! Raita is really good - its yogurt and cucumber. have that with some Rajma (Kidney beans) and noramlly roti no butter. With the rices stick to plane. Poppodoms are really low as well.. You can have many of the salads and yogurt dishes like the Bhels. There's many options just avoid anything with Paneer or cream.. even coconut milk is quite high. I think even with some of the vegtabel dishes the amount of fats is quite high so stick to the ones that dont have as much or when taking your share just avoid the oils maybe? Bombay aloo isnt so bad and Palak Methi is really really good... even Baigan ka bharta which is roasted aubergine wth onions and tomatoes.
  • You don't have this problem if you eat at Olive Garden.
  • How many fat Indians do you know?

    • Vittorio 'Sam' Manunta-Lowell
