Healthy king prawn curry is a delicious low calorie, low fat curry. It’s as tasty as a traditional king prawn curry recipe. But using a healthy way of cooking it’s made into a healthy curry recipe that’s waistline friendly!
What Makes This A Healthy King Prawn Curry Recipe?
Folks you should know straight away that my healthy king prawn recipe removes EIGHT tablespoons of vegetable oil (that is a whopping 960 calories!) from a recipe I used to use and replaces it with ONE tablespoon (120 calories).
Hence, compared to that (which was a standard king prawn curry recipe) this IS a HEALTHY low calorie king prawn curry recipe.
Now don’t get me wrong because small amounts of healthy oils, like olive oil, coconut oil etc. do contain essential healthy fats that our bodies must have.
But not eight tablespoons of vegetable oil in one meal!!
Anyway, back to this new healthy king prawn curry recipe.
