The trick to getting this sweet right is in browning the besan (gram flour) perfectly and using powdered sugar for the smooth consistency.

Roti (low fat) WW=0 points each

Worth 0 points.
North Indian Flat bread; also called Chapatti.
Made from very fine whole wheat flour found in Indian stores. Used for gravy foods. Some recipes call for milk or yogurt (said to make the bread softer) and oil but these are not necessary and only add calories and fat to the nutritional value. If follow this recipe the Weight Watcher points are = 0 each

palak paneer WW = 3 points (1/2 cup)

North Indian pureed spinach with Indian cheese.
Worth 3 points using Pointsfinder sliding scale, approx. 1/2 cup per serving.

Masoor Dal WW = 3 points (1/2 cup)

Masoor Dal (Red Split Dal).
There are many different ways to prepare any dal. This is just one East Indian (Bengali) preperation.
Worth 3 Weight Watcher Points per 1/2 cup.

Channa Dal WW = 3 Points (1/2 cup)

East Indian Dal; one of the many ways to prepare this dal.
Worth 3 Weight Watcher Points for 1/2 cup serving

Brown Basmati rice WW = 4 point (1/2 cup)

Replacing white rice with brown rice is a healthier option. Regular short grain brown rice flavor and consistancy changes the taste of a dish it is added to. My husband and I have found that brown basmati rice is soft and does not interrupt the flavor of our foods. We use Kohinoor brand; found in Indian store.
1/2 cup is worth 4 Weight Watcher Points (1/2 cup)

Chicken Makhani WW=5 pts (1/3 cup serving)

Rich North Indian Chicken dish AKA: Butter Chicken. an all time favorite!
Worth 5 weight watcher points (1/3 cup serving).

    Indian Recipes (everyday cooking) with Weight Watcher Point Values
    Weight Watchers does not offer any point value info. for Indian food other than a few dishes you would order at restaurant. This has been frustrating! Thanks to SparkRecipes, I now have the tools needed to create my own book using family and friend recipes!!! //^_^\\
