Low FODMAP Chicken Curry Recipe

lowfodmap chicken curry recipe whatthefod

One of the things I miss most is a good curry!!! Unfortunately, Indian food is without a doubt the hardest cuisine to eat on the low fodmap diet. I am yet to find one restaurant or supermarket sauce that doesn’t contain onion or garlic – so you do really need to make it at home if you have the craving! After playing around for a while, I’ve found a low fodmap chicken curry recipe that works for me.

I can’t say it’s ever going to be as good as your takeaway tikka, but it will do the trick and it is lower on the calories! It’s super easy to make and when I’ve served it to my non low fodmap friends, they’ve really enjoyed it and didn’t notice any difference.

Have a try and see what you think.



  • Meat or fish of your choice – I prefer chicken
  • Butter

For your Marinade

  • Fresh coriander (a handful)
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ lime
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Garlic Oil

For your Sauce

  • coconut milk
  • olive oil
  • fresh ginger (small amount)
  • Spring onions (the green part)
  • Tomatoes (tinned or chopped)

In a bowl mix together the ingredients of the marinade above, cut the chicken into small pieces and mix well with your hand (if you have the time leave to stand for a few hours.)

Whilst the chicken is cooking, you can fry it in butter for a creamier taste; start to make your sauce.

Fry the tomatoes with spring onions, ginger and olive oil. Once the tomatoes are soft add the coconut milk.

At this point if you have a blender then blend the sauce and add the chicken.

Serve with rice and/or low fodmap vegetables such as: spinach and carrots.

What do you think? Do you have a low fodmap curry recipe to share?

      Thank you Louise – glad you like it. It’s a simple one that can be whipped-up of an evening after work, to hit the spot. Are you following the low FODMAP diet?

        Yes it cured all my symptoms but after a while I got complacent as I was finding it really hard, nearly impossible to follow especially when eating out. I started to slack off and my symptoms were starting to return. My IBS when at its worst was really chronic and was limiting my life. The website was shared on Facebook and it totally inspired me! The receipts are so simple but filling and delicious too. I’ve been following it religiously for 2 weeks and feel physically and mentally so much healthier. Thank you Danielle you have inspired and helped me more than you will ever know. I used to be really embarrassed to go to a restaurant and list all my food intorrences but I think if Danielle can do it so can I! Prezzo in Marlow were fantastic. Keep posting, I loved the blog on the Christmas markets in fact I love all the blogs! I would love you to bring out a cookery book.
