Healthy Indian Curry Recipe

Healthy Indian Curry Recipe

Growing up in an Asian household, you become accustomed to some form of curry on a near daily basis.

The problem is, these tend to be drenched in oil and calorie dense ingredients that aren’t conducive to dieting.

That’s why I came up with a healthy alternative that’s super macro friendly and will allow me to continue eating it as I diet into my next bodybuilding show.


  • 400g chicken
  • 1 tbsp Pathak’s tandoori paste
  • Tomato passata – I just poured this over, not loads, just enough to cover the meat
  • ½ tbsp turmeric
  • Water – just enough so it can form the curry
  • 3-5 sprays of olive oil
  • Few pinches of sea salt
  • Optional: coriander leaf, paprika


  • Marinate the chicken overnight in the tandoori, turmeric and tomato passata
  • Spray the pan with olive oil, add the chicken in and pour some water in for the paste
  • Place the pan on a low heat for 20-25 mins, cover it with a lid, and stir it every 5-10 minutes

Super simple recipe that’ll be a game changer for those of you who love curries, but also love being lean.
