Lactose Free Indian Curry

"This is great for those who are lactose intolerant or keep Kosher. For those who are lactose intolerant, they get to try an Indian dish they would not otherwise get to try. For those who keep Kosher, there is no dairy in soy products, and that takes the worry out of mixing meat and dairy, which is otherwise a big no-no."

Ready In:




  • Heat olive oil, in a skillet, on medium high heat. Once hot, brown the drumstick meat in it, until it's properly cooked, about 5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl mix the plain soy yogurt with the seasonings, then slowly add it to the skillet, making sure the chicken is properly coated in it, as it is cooking. Stir occasionally for 3 minutes.
  • In another small bowl, mix water and cornstarch, until there it is smooth and there are no lumps. Add this to the chicken mixture, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes or until sauce thickens.
  • Serve warm and over basmati rice.

  1. I love curry and was glad to see this recipe. I thought it had good flavor but was missing something. Possibly sliced onions could have been used. I did make a couple of changes using 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs and reducing the red pepper flakes to 1/2 teaspoon. The allspice berries were crushed prior to adding. The recipe made 2 generous servings served on a bed of rice garnished with sliced green onions. Good luck in the contest.
  2. Very nice variation on curry! This was easy to prepare and had a great flavor. There was a nice kick to it that was balanced out by the rice and yogurt. I was a little nervous about adding the 1/2 cup water at the end, since it was already very liquidy, but it worked perfectly to thicken it up. There was a lot of sauce, so plenty for the rice, and would easily work with a little more chicken too. Thanks for sharing! Good luck!


I am an Israeli-Canadian who grew up in Montreal Quebec. I love to cook, especially for family and friends, and I love to experiment with recipes and try to do different variations of the same recipe. I did do part of cooking school, but found the place stressful and all the good recipes high in fat and calories, even the good ones. I don't have a fave cookbook, but I eat kosher. I have a dream and that is to own my own B&B one of these days. I also love creative writing, and maybe I like to try make up a recipe of my own and see if I'm good at doing that. I have to add that I do have some favourite chefs from the Food Network. They are Giada De Laurentis from Everyday Italian; Micheal Smith from Chef at Home; Jamie Oliver and everything he does; Anna Olson from Sugar; and Chef Gordon Ramsey from Hells' Kitchen and Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 08 <img src=""> <img src=""> fall 08 <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> spring 09 <img src=""> fall 09 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="">
