1/2 tsp cumin (ground)

1 tsp chili powder
1 fresh chopped coriander
1 (a handful)
1 salt to taste
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over moderate heat. Fry the onions,
ginger and garlic until the onions are translucent. Add the tomato
and stir-fry, breaking it up with the spoon. Pour in 300 ml / 1/2 UK
pint water, and stir in the other ingredients. Bring to the boil.
Lower heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and
allow to cool. Pour into a blender or food processor and liquidize.
(Note: this is only one formula of thousands possible. There's no
more a single recipe for Balti sauce than there's a single recipe for
chili. Some cooks like more garlic, some more chili powder; some use
fresh chilies as well: some add yogurt, coconut, cream...you name

Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of sales blurb that claims 'low carb' - check the actual nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Many are only a little lower and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Although you may be able to buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may also make them by simply using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. Store in an airtight container.
(includes cilantro, turnip greens and winter squash)
These colorful healthy plants are rich in the carotenoids believed by nutritionalists be a key nutrient in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly those cancers involving the lung, esophagus and stomach. Most are low in calories, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
