    Chicken low-Kalhari Balti

    This simple balti is delicious plus low in saturated fat and calories. After starting a diet club last year, I put my culinary skills to good use making low fat options that were still very tasty. I was so proud of this that I shared it on the clubs forums and I got a very positive response from other members too. If desired, you can add any other veg that you may like to the recipe. Serve with boiled rice, low fat nan or to make it even healthier pumkin or butternut squash chips go well.

    My recipe is:

    • Lighter option
