Cauli Rice Recipe - Chicken Balti

Easy Chicken Balti With Cauli Rice

I love curry, we have it at least once a week and I wouldn’t mind if I had it every single day. For the longest time I have had the coconut based curries but recently I am leaning towards the tomato based dishes. A particular favourite being the Balti- not too spicy but full of flavour.

Easy Chicken Balti with Cauli Rice

The problem with eating curries all the time, even though I make my own, is that it is a carb heavy meal. I love lots of rice and absolutely cannot have a curry without having a naan too. This all makes for lots of calories and if you are watching your weight then this can be a problem. So what do you do? Cut down on rice? Cut out the naan?… Umm no.

Cauli Rice

Cauli Rice is a fab new product offering 75% fewer calories than rice, pasta and potatoes. You may have heard of cauliflower rice before but up until now you will have had to make it at home yourself. Well no more- hurrah! Now all you need to do is pop the pouch in the microwave and voila!

Here is my recipe for Easy Chicken Balti:

The Cauli Rice doesn’t have a specific taste, certainly not of cauliflower anyway. If there is any flavour it is overshadowed by the Balti itself, which is how it should be I think.

Gluten free, low carb chicken balti. Are you on a low carb diet? You can enjoy a curry too!

Let me know if you try it yourself and share any photos on FB, I would love to see them!

    I’ve never heard of cauli rice before, it sounds great. I adore curries too and am avoiding them at the moment to lose some weight! Mich x
