Slimming World Friendly West African Curry Recipe

west african curry

I thought I would bring you all a great recipe we have enjoyed a number of times over the last few years – West African Curry. If you are on Slimming World then it is around 2 syns a portions as the only thing you have to count is the Mango Chutney. The original version of this was found in an old ASDA Choices Cookbook but I have adapted it slightly for my taste and to make it more slimming friendly!

    This looks delicious. I haven’t had anything like this before so I am very curious to try. I would use lentils (as a vego) but all the same spices etc. Thanks for sharing! Bec x |
