La Porte Des Indes’ presents its high taste, low calorie lunch menu

20 Jan 2012

Multi award-winning Indian restaurant La Porte des Indes has unveiled a superb new 650 calorie Light Lunch Menu that will make easing into the New Year a little less painful. The average person consumes a massive 7,000 calories on Christmas Day alone, so it’s small wonder that come January many of us try to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Once back at work however, resolutions weaken, particularly when it comes to finding nutritious but filling lunchtime fare.

With all this in mind, La Porte des Indes’ renowned Executive Chef Mehernosh Mody has created a three-course lunch that is not only delicious, but packed with essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes that will help eliminate stored toxins and support the body back to optimal health.

To start are tandoori-grilled florets marinated with green lime and lemongrass and yoghurt, a combination packed with iron, calcium and vitamins A and C.

The main course offers a choice between omega and zinc-rich tandoori grilled wild salmon steaks rolled in mustard, fennel, chillies and aniseed or Portobello mushrooms marinated with green herbs and grilled in the tandoor. Served with tomato rougail, this combination is replete with selenium, B-vitamins, lycopene, potassium and B-carotene.

Both choices are accompanied with organic red rice, naturally high in fibre, Vitamin B, magnesium and potassium, B vitamins-infused thyme roti and tempered yellow lentils with garlic, red chillies and curry leaves, an excellent source of protein, calcium and iron.

A lychee and rose sorbet, rich in antioxidants and free radicals and with no added sugar, completes the offering.

This tasty yet guilt-free repast is available for just £19 per head to include a glass of freshly squeezed juice.
