    Indian food

    Shop Now
    I am extremely new to primal lifestyle so bear with

    how do we feel about Curry's

    eg chicken balti- lamb rogan josh and other indian dishes?

    I am presuming that these are fine for primal eating?

    they are essential meats prepared with spices etc?

    can anyone give a more definitive answer... thanks.

    If you are talking about indian food prepared in your home with meats, veggies and spices (minus the bread and rice), then it is great.

    When you are talking about eating out, you will get more than you bargain for at many restaurants - crappy oils, thickeners, and other artificial ingredients can be found in many dishes.

    Eating out in the UK you'd get a lot of vegetable oil in most curries. You could try drier dishes to avoid that. Tikka should be perfectly good. Maybe some restaurants cook with ghee but I doubt the majority (if you're feeling bold you could ask them to I guess!).

    An Indian restaurant near me actually has printed on the bottom of the menu "All of our food is cooked in GM soy oil" - like that is a good thing! And I reckon most will buy their oil from similar suppliers. So I now eat curry rarely. And this is Surrey, UK.
