Zoodles Recipe – Versatile and Healthy Low Carbs Alternative

3 Oct

zoodles-tikka-masala-chicken-curry-recipe-healthy-foods-vegetarian-veganEvery time I am on Pinterest I have seen appetizing pictures of Zoodles. It has been on my list for a while. Finally a couple of weeks back I made it for the first time. On my first try I cooked it too long and it became too watery. I kept reducing the time on the stove till I finally felt that I had got it. The best duration to cook the zoodles is adding it to an already heated pan or pot taking it off heat and mixing it gently till the heats transfers and makes them soft without letting out too much water. This is not a very good food for leftovers you got to make it fresh. For the next couple of weeks I used zoodles as substitute for pasta and rice. Enjoyed them with pasta sauce, chicken curry and kung pao chicken. It gives you the same sense of slurping regular pasta or noodles without the extra carbs.
