Thread: Indian Food Help! Points...

  1. Default Indian Food Help! Points...

    Hello!

    I have to go to a work related dinner tonight at an Indian food restaurant. Anyone have info on points for indian dishes? Suggestions on what to order? My usual fare of fried samosas and gooey sag paneer isn't gonna cut it now that I am on WW.

    Thanks!

    I hate to tell you this ...but most indian food at restaurants are not pointfriendly . Rotis( flat bread) without butter and channa masala/Rajma masala( garbanzo beans/kidney beans) or plain dhal might be a good option.

    Avoid puris( deep fried bread) or naan with butter. The Raitha ( curd based salad) is normally made with whole milk yogurt. And I do get the saag paneer but give all the paneer to my kids. Without the paneer, I would estimate it to be around 4 pts/cup

    Plain steamed rice is also good( 3 pts for a cup)

    Hope this was helpful...

    Saag is actually one of your safer bets, at only 6 points per cup (must be all that spinach keeping points lower!). But add the naan and rice and golobjuman and the points rack up quickly. I don't know of any way to do indian food keeping the points really low, unfortunately, but it's worth the flex points every once in a while!

    Saag paneer is 6 points/cup. Aloo-gobhi is 2 points/cup. Beef masala is 5 points/cup. Lamb masala is 6 points/cup. Tandoori shrimp is 4 points/cup. Chicken vindaloo is 8 points/cup. Beef or chicken curry is 10 points/cup. Samosas are 3 points each. It might not be easy, but you can do it.

    If you make it yourself, it would be pretty easy to figure the points by adding up the points of the various ingredients and then dividing by the servings. Restaurant food would be harder because there are so many variations.

    I did a quick Google search and this is what I found. The list is about half way down the page.

    If you google the points for Indian food (maybe even the individual dishes} there is a lot of information out there.

    Good luck. I love the stuff too.
