Grated Egg Curry - 1 point

In May, I bookmarked a recipe from Sobha at Good Food. One of my favorite dishes is egg curry; I grew up eating a version made with whole, boiled eggs. Sobha's version, using grated eggs, greatly intrigued me.  I made it for dinner today, and was pleased to find that it is every bit as delicious as I anticipated. Egg is a beautiful texture for curry, and Sobha's blend of spices is spot-on perfect.

The only change I made to the dish was to use 6 egg whites instead of 3 eggs - this was simply to cut down on fat content and, thus, lower the WW points of the dish. This recipe with the egg white substitution (click here for the original) yields 3, 1 point servings.


A bit of news about a change to my blog. You know that I am a teacher and my husband is a librarian. You also know that teachers and librarians are not paid exorbitant salaries and that we are attempting to pay off some debt (car loan) while also paying Stone's grad school tuition (ouch). The university announced that they are extorting us raising that tuition quite a bit. In order to stay afloat in Angela/Stone household (Stanglea or Anone - we have not decided), we have to tighten our belts. Therefor, I am going to stop using Weight Watchers and start using the free tools on Livestrong.com. I have a few recipes left for which I have already calculated points (and almost 150 already posted here). However, soon I will not be posting point values anymore. I will try to give as much nutritional information as possible so that those on Weight Watchers can calculate their own points. 

Now, I am off to visit my friend the tread mill as I succumbed to a truly irresistible temptation - chocolate hazelnut cookies.  I know you don't blame me, but my thighs do.
