Thought that might be the case.  I wonder if Indian people get IC, it would be a real problem for them wouldnt it.

Thanks Dawn.
It seems that IC is a world wide problem.  I just wish more money would be put into research for it, maybe we would find some interesting results.

Hiya, I can eat kormas and have no side effects (not always good when you've got IBS though ) x

My local indian restrurant makes me something called Chicken Nicola.   I explained to him about tomatoes and spoces etc.  Well its very tasty and I seem to be able to tolerate it.  Thats real personal service for you.  I think maybe his profits had gone down because I used to be in there evry week!!!!

Hi sooty,
haven't seen your original post, but I'm indian and I think the prolem with indian food can be a lot of the restaurants or takeaways are laden with garam masala and spices.
the key is to pick blander foods like dal  (lentil soup), mixed vegetables, rice, naans - all the breads.
Infact, I think since IC, my indian diet has been healthier in that I stick to vegetables (amazing variety from cauliflower, aubergines, carrots...), dal and chapattis. 
I can eat the odd curry or meat dish but I tend to stay away from them or prepare it myself!
Most curries tend to be made with a base of onions(not v. much) and roasted tomatoes...so if it's not the spice that get's you, it will be that.

So without knowing your original question- hope that helped!

Thank you for that.  I do so love indian food and really miss it.  If you were to prepare a chicken or lamb curry how would you make it? I could then try myself

take a look at recipes or see what's out there in restaurants - perhaps like another poster said, just ask for those without tomatoes...

Sometimes dishes without sacues are best as they don't have tomatoes in them - like minced meat, kebabs,  tandoori chicken (this is quite Ic friendly as marinated in yoghurt and spices and baked)  - tikka masala is laden with spices and colourings hence the red colour!


To make a chicken curry can take a little practice as it's the sauce that counts. But try it out - you just need an onion, cut and fry till brown, add spices as needed or just salt, turmeric, ginger, garlic (which I found is IC friendly in small doses) and then add a little either cherry tomatoes and cook till the sauce is reddy brown. If you don't want to add tomatoes, can be a little tricky cooking meat curries as that is what gives it a little gravy type..

then add the meat, put on a high heat and stir until the meat is not pink anymore (this stops it from disintegrating when water is added) and then add hot water add simmer till meat is cooked...

you may need to add more water as it is cooking..or use a thickening agent for the sauce.

Minced meat is a really nice tasty dish - all you have to do is make a onion base (cut and fry till golden brown) add garlic, ginger, salt and chilli if wanted  - put some peas in and then the minced meat - put on a high heat and stir till pinkness has gone - then simmer..will be a really tasty side dish..


A lot of indian foods are simple to make apart from the meat dishes!
For instance for any vegetable curry, all you need is the onion base with spices etc and then add vegetable and simmer. So quite healthy and low in calories
PS There is a lot of ginger and garlic used in many indian dishes mainly for digestion purposes and to help constipation and stomach upset..

Hi guys

The only indian dish that I can really east is called butter chicken or its sometimes called mirk mkhani. Its reaaalllly mild, milder than a korma, it has literally no spices in it. It uses coconut milk and cream in it. Give it a try x
