Post your takeaway favorites

Hi all. Looking to get a recipe type thread going. Here in the naughty corner where it is needed most. Like people to post there takeaway favorites. The dishes that they crave on their cheat days. Or that makes them fail on a weekly basis. Then we need some healthier versions aimed first at taste then nutrition. Even if there is a low fat shop brand that rocks please share details.

For me I love kebabs with spicy sauces and meat. I do have a very good chicken pitta recipe I will post when I get home.

Have yet to find a decent spicy creamy Chicken Tikka Massala that dose not have a gut busting amount of fat and calories in it.

For us Brits that would be: (I think!!!)
400g can chickpeas
118ml maple syrup - (16 syns)
50g unsweetened cocoa powder - (9 syns)
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted - (18 syns)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract (essence is free, some extracts aren't because of oils in them... but I can't find anything on the website under 'vanilla extract')
50g dark chocolate chips - (12 syns)

If it makes 12 cupcakes, and providing I've got the syns values right... that would be 4.5 syns per cupcake...

My favourite Sweet & Sour recipe... for the SW followers it works out at 1.5 syns on EE/Red and 12.5 syns on Green

800g chicken thighs (I normally use chicken breasts, and less than 800g... usually 1 breast per person)
1 garlic clove, crushed
4 spring onions, thinly sliced, plus extra to garnish
1 green pepper and 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
200 fresh pineapple cut into bitesize pieces
pinch of salt

Sauce
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
6 tbsp light soy sauce
4 tbsp tomato puree
1 tbsp rice vingear
6 tbsp unsweetened orange juice
100ml chicken stock
1-2tsp sweetner
1 level tbsp cornflour

Method
Mix sauce ingredients together thoroughly & set aside.

Spray wok with fry light and place on high heat. Add the chicken when it gets hot and stir-fry for 6-7 mintues until cooked through.

Add the garlic, spring onions and peppers and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Pour the sauce into the pan and stir continuously for 1 minute until it thickens and everything is well covered with the sauce.

Remove from the heat and add the pineapple. Season with salt and garnich with spring onions. Serve with noodles or rice.

Creamy Chicken Korma

Free on SW EE/Red


Ingredients

3 bay leaves
1 cinnamon stick
1 tsp crushed cardamom seeds, 1/4 tsp crushed cloves and 2 tsp cumin seeds
1 onion, peeled and finely grated
1 tbsp each of ground corriander and ground cumin, 2 tsp mild curry powder
3 tsp peeled and finely grated ginger and 2 tsp peeled and finely crushed garlic
200g can tomatoes (I use a normal 400g can to add a bit more liquid)
1kg skinless and boneless chicken breasts, cut into bitesized pieces (I don't use 1kg chicken, I usually use about 650g, roughly 3 chicken breasts)
200ml chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground pepper
5 tbsp fat free fromage frais
Freshly chopped mint, to garnish

Method
Spray a large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the bay leaves, cinnamon stick, cardomom seeds, cumin seeds and onion and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes.

Add the ground corriander and cumin, curry powder, ginger, garlic and tomatoes and stor-fry for another 3-4 minutes.

Put the chicken into the pan and pour over the stock. Bring to the boil, season well, cover tightly, reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the fromage frais. Serve immediately garnished with chopped mint.

Thanks Sarahc will give that Korma one a go. Love curries.
Sadly the only thing I remember about my chicken kebab is making the yogurt marinade with Greek 0% fat yogurt, lemon juice, seasoning, tikka spice, fresh coriander and a load of garlic. Leaving the garlic for 5 mins once chopped before adding to develop the flavor. Then cooking on skewers the next day. Used pitas and had a chopped salad with some spicy olive oil Mediterranean style dressing. Remember baby gurkins, sweet chillis and splashes of hot sauce. Also making a yogurt, peeled, seeded and chopped cucumber and mint drizzle kinda sauce to balance the spice. All I ate for about a month lol.

I found the Korma was a bit more like a Tikka to be honest, spicer than I expect a Korma to be, but it's lovely just the same
It's the only SW curry my sister likes, so we've had that one quite a bit

The Kebab sounds good, I'll have to look for a SW version... I know I've got a SW Donner Kebab type recipe somewhere (think it's like a meatloaf recipe essentially, I used to love meatloaf when I was a kid!), not made it myself yet but I've heard very good reports! I'll try post that for anyone who is interested
