This chicken saagwala dish has been specifically adapted so we low FODMAP foodies can enjoy it! It is delicious and very mild so shouldn't cause gastrointestinal issues. To serve I suggest freshly cooked rice with a side of green beans and grilled eggplant. Also remember to divide the recipe into four serves.
Garlic infused oil is found in the oil section of your local supermarket. It should be clear with no floating bits of garlic. You can also make garlic infused oil at home by frying garlic cloves in cooking oil, until they are golden and fragrant (then remove the garlic before you continue cooking your meal). This is a low FODMAP way to capture the garlic flavour as the fructans can't leach into the oil.
Check the crushed ginger does not contain garlic. Crushed ginger is grated ginger that has been preserved in a jar. You can swap it for fresh ginger if you prefer.
Make sure you buy a leek that has long green tips (this is the low FODMAP part), as you can’t use the white/light green leek bulb (this part is high FODMAP).
Choose plain canned tomatoes with no added herbs or spices. Check there is no added onion or garlic.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
