Low Carb Indian

Really love Indian? See our complete guide to Low Carb Indian Food for all phases of Atkins, recipes, and a free eBook of over 100 low carb Indian foods.

 

The Pros

  • Indian cuisines are healthy, complex and contain multiple ingredients.

 

The Cons

  • Many Indian meals and sauces contain high carb ingredients such as flour and sugar.

 

How To Order

Choose healthy kebabs, meat based curries and tandoori.

Ask about the ingredients in any dish you’re not familiar with.

Try Raita (yogurt and minced cucumbers) to soften the heat of curries.

 

Low Carb Indian Substitutions

(From Dr. Atkins’ Dining Out, Indian Style.)

Instead of vegetable samosas, which are pastries, try Shahi Paneer, a homemade cheese in a creamy curried tomato sauce.

Substitute roasted eggplant with onions and spices for any of the fritters, called pakora.

Instead of the typical lentil or Mulligatawny soup, order a bowl of chicken Shorba, made with chicken, garlic, ginger, cinnamon, cumin and other spices.

A vindaloo almost always contains potatoes. Get a tandoori dish instead.

Enjoy a korma, which is meat in a cream sauce, as a replacement for any biryani, which is a rice dish.

Substitute any curried meat dish for any of the dals.

Order meat or shrimp kebabs rather than a saag dish, which is prepared with spinach and spices, but heavily thickened with flour or another starch.
