    Indian food

    I find indian food to be completely unique as ethnic food goes, in that once I start, I cannot stop eating until I am grossly overfull. Has anyone else had this experience? And, much more importantly, does anyone have any info as to the nutritional content of indian food (generally speaking), esp. the proportion of proteins to carbs to fats?

    Indian food is so tasty. Curry chicken is so good... or anything they do with eggplant.

    Here's some info on Indian food:

    Pappadums are very high in calories but because they are often eaten in small portions energy intake is low

    Korma and Biryani dishes are some of the most fattening Indian dishes

    although the fat content in naan bread is medium they are such a dense food that total calories are high

    Indian foods are often cooked in Ghee - basically pure fat and high in cholesterol!

    Any sauces that solidify at room temperature are high in saturated fats

    Tikka dishes are usually lower in fat as the meat is cooked in a dry oven

    Green Chiles used in many Indian curries are high in vitamin C

    Red chili powder is high in vitamin A
