I can't seem to find any specific information or a good site that tells you the nutritional values of indian foods, such as chapati, naad bread, curry etc etc.

If anyone comes across any info, please let me know.

Thanks.

Prepared meals will vary highly in nutritional value depending on what is in them.

Chapati is low glycemic and is probably comparable to whole wheat pita bread in value. Naan is white bread and should probably be avoided unless it's a treat!

Most curries I've had are high in protein, fat, and carbs...couldn't tell you exact values though for the reasons hemants gave.

dude. It's sooo easy to make.

Heat :

1 tsp canola oil
Throw in half can of crushed tomatoes.
Add 2 teaspoons of Madras Curry powder and some salt.
Add WHATEVER THE HELL ELSE YOU WANT (eg. 1 can of chick peas or red kidney beans)

serve with rice or flatbread

Done!

Oh, and while we're at it: food/p/f/c

1/2 cup rice 2.5/22.5/.25
1 cup kidney beans 16/40/1
1 tsp oil 0/0/5

Total : 18.5/62.5/6.25

Percentage by calories : 20/65/15
