Who else LOVES a takeaway? (Yeah, me too!). The first thing when thinking of 'clean eating' is, " So can i still have my favourite takeaways?". In fact... We can!

This clean takeaway version of the Indian favourite is packed with Super filling veggies to fill you up for longer. We have replaced full fat cream for yoghurt, and white rice for brown!
