Mushroom Masala Curry

I have this strange compulsive habit of buying way too much mushrooms when I’m out grocery shopping (I have no idea why…I must have mushroom issues or something). So, I usually have a fridge full of mushrooms that I don’t know what to do with. Well, that was before I discovered this recipe.

8. Indian Butter Shrimp

  1. Wow! Complaints anyone. I think your recipes look fantastic. And yes, compared to high carb meals, they do seem on the lower end of the carb spectrum. Keep the good recipes coming!

  2. Potatoes? Does the author understand the meaning of the words “low carb?” There’s no such thing as a low carb potato…

  3. While I loved this page, I agree potato can never be low carb. However my main dilemma with low carb Indian meals is what to eat them with? As soon as you put roti alongside these meals, the low carb goal is defeated. So all I left with is some form of chicken/ egg and greens, making it harder to keep the regime. Any suggestions?

    1. We usually eat them as is, almost like an Indian “stew”. When we’re looking to make it a bit more substantial, we’ll add some cauliflower rice. There’s also plenty of recipes online for low-carb roti and naan bread using coconut flour, etc – that’s something you can look into as well. 🙂

  4. Yep – low carb diets and potatoes don’t mix! Rebranding is a good plan. Whilst I’m on a low carb diet, it doesn’t make these recipes any less appealing!!

    1. Hello B, it’s not our intention to mislead our readers/visitors. So, we are in the process of rebranding from a “low-carb” to a mostly “whole ingredient” blog. We’ve come to realize that the opinion of what is and isn’t low-carb seems to vary from person to person, and since we are not qualified nutrition experts, we would rather avoid the confusion.

      1. Wow it’s a year later and you still haven’t “rebranded” which is silly. That’s like saying you had a concussion when you wrote the title. Again. This list is not low carb. Why are you tricking people into clicking your link?

      2. Hi Kevin! Thanks for spending your time to write this comment. We have, in fact, completely rebranded – BUT updating hundreds of older posts takes a LOT of time. This little post is pretty low down the the popularity list, so it might still be a while before we get to it. Until then, these recipes can be easily adapted (by substituting potato for cauliflower for example) if they’re not quite what you’re looking for (since they’re still healthier alternatives).
