Indian Food

If you love Indian food, listen up! Butter chicken is a classic Indian dish.  The name gives it away in terms of calories and fat.  The sauce, known as a tomato gravy, is made with fresh tomatoes, Indian spices and then comes the butter and cream. Once the dish has simmered and thickened a dollop of extra butter or cream is added for the final garnish. A typical plate contains around 800 calories and  40 gm of fat, mostly saturated!  More than half your daily calories and fat.

Think of this as eating 19 pats of butter in terms of fat!

Forget it and go for the chicken tikka, where the chicken is marinated in yogurt and spices and baked in a tandoor oven. It comes in at only  200 calories and 4 gm of fat. Your heart will love you!
