If you are looking for a quick, but tasty, dinner then look no further. This is my go-to meal when I am in a rush but still fancy something with flavour. I often serve this with a low carb pita and it feels like I am having a takeaway!

This recipe equals to 12g of carbs and 3g of net carbs per serving. If you would like to reduce the total carb amount you can omit the onion and use just 1 tbsp of curry powder.
