When you think of a curry most people think of a thick creamy oily sauce filled with fatty meat and served on a bed of fluffy white rice with a side of naan bread. While it’s fair enough to satisfy that craving once in a while, it is possible for you to enjoy a delicious and healthy curry that will leave you feeling light and satisfied. In this recipe, Chloe Moir Nutrition has used her favourite vegetables that team perfectly with curry spices for a healthy curry that hits the spot. Feel free to add in an extra protein source such as chicken, prawns or fish and low GI carbohydrates such as quinoa or brown rice.

The following recipe makes enough for 4 servings.

What You’ll Need:
