Low Cal Chicken Curry Recipe
LOW FAT COCONUT MILK
18 oz non fat plain yogurt
8 oz non fat milk
2 packets equal sweetener
2 tsp imitation coconut extract
3 cup low fat coconut milk
1 tbsp thai red curry base
1 lb cubed chicken
2 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tomato, diced
3 scallions, diced
2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 yellow pepper, diced
2 tsp thai garlic chili sauce
1 fresh sweet basil
This recipe is the same as my recipe for Chicken Curry except that
since the coconut milk is so high in fat I decided to try to come up
with a substitute. This is the resulting formulation. It turns out
to be a very good substitute and the only thing I found needed to be
changed is that this recipe required quite a bit of stirring at the
beginning to keep the yogurt from coming out of suspension when the
cold or room temperature chicken is added. Combine the yogurt and
milk in a blender bowl and process until well mixed. Add the Equal
sweetener and pulse blender to mix. Add the artificial coconut
extract to the mixture and adjust to taste if necessary. In a large
saucepan, combine coconut milk with curry base over medium heat until
oil appears on top. Add chicken, seasoning sauce, lemon juice and
simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining
ingredients except mushrooms and garlic chili sauce. Cover and simmer
for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic chili sauce to taste. Cover
and simmer 2 minutes. Serve hot over rice. Garnish with sprigs of
fresh sweet basil. From: Syd's Cookbook.

Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baked goods, substitute it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most situtations, you may convert your most popular recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of a good quality substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for everything, but it gives very good results once you have it cracked.
