Chicken Curry Recipe Information

Answered on March 29, 2014
Created March 26, 2014 at 6:58 PM

I have made a chicken curry from a couple different Paleo recipes and they always have so much liquid left over. Normally I would use rice with my curry dish but since that isn't really ideal option what else could I use?

I like this idea. Squash would taste really good with it.

Dude, paleo is really whatever you feel is best for you. I am not all about the anal paleo-labeling; basically, there are guidelines but I think a lot of folks also get very sheep-like following every single word some "PaleoGuru" who thinks he/she has solved chemistry. It's your individual body and if you like rice and it fits into your diet, white rice is very mild on the body. However I would not suggest brown or other exotic rices - personally those destroy my little stomach creatures. I like the idea of "whole, real food lifestyle" >> "Paleo-bandwagon-labeling."

why isn't rice ideal for the curry dish?

Please don't be seduced by the claims of people losing 15lbs a month - that is the kind of weight loss that comes back once you normalize your eating. If you can make losing easy, by not being overly restrictive, it will stay off. I have lost 85 lbs and kept it off for 7 years and counting! Be mindful, be measured, don't be too restrictive, and you will be fine!

In moderation, white rice is fine, and you can lose weight while eating it. Limit your starches to the end of the day, and don't load up. Just enough to mop up your juicy curry! You don't want all that good fat to go to waste! There are so many different kinds of "dieters" - always remember, if it is too difficult for you to maintain over time, any diet will fail. So if it is hard for you to avoid rice, don't avoid it - just be mindful about your eating of it. The weight will come off.

White rice is definitely allowed, but it's sort of the refined-sugar of the starches. You're getting all carbs and nothing but awesome ricey flavor, where you might want to switch that out for something that has more going on nutritionally.

Thank you for all the input. I am still kind of confused. How do I know white rice is ok in moderation but brown isn't? I guess I will figure it out.

YOYOYO use canned/fresh pumpkin or a pureed squash. A while ago Krogies had canned pumpkin on closeout and I got like 20 cans. Just dump some in, gives the curry or dish a nice color, nice mild taste, and thickens the dish.

@ivymcivy Thank you for the reply. I don't have issues with rice. I just thought it wasn't allowed if you do Paleo. What is this way of eating all about then? I guess I am confused. I get different information depending on which "Paleo" site I go to. I just want to lose weight but enjoy doing it.

I bet you could throw it over some cauliflower "rice" or spiralized vegetables and make something interesting happen or get a stew going with some broth / stock / veg.

Why isn't rice an option? Do you have a problem with rice or is it just that you have swallowed some "paleo" dogma? There is nothing wrong with a small/moderate amount of rice, or potato (white or sweet) or any safe starch you might want to sop up your curry with. As long as you tolerate them and they work for you, they are good. The most excellent thing about this philosophy is that you try things and tailor this way of eating to what works the best for you. Don't follow someone else's rules - they probably won't work for you. You don't have the same chemistry, genetics, appetite, environment, etc. Take the time to try things and see if they work instead of slicing good, whole foods out of your diet because someone says they aren't "PALEO". Good luck!
