I get my prawn crackers with a chinese take away so I presume the carbs are similar or may be even higher if they are bigger .The trouble is that they give them free with your meal and they are impossible to limit to 1 or 2 .The calories are fine for me but the carbs thumbs down .Do you think I could ask them to do me a low carb version ;)

I know !! drool

The average take away poppadom is about 28.3 gms of carb per 100gms.A serving, one poppadom is about 13gm weight which would be 3.6 gm of carb ! Not a lot and much better than a chapati or a naan !

You can get mini poppadoms from Asda and probably other places. The Asda ones are 36.2gm of carb per 100gm so....if you have a lot of will power you could weight out a small portion for a treat once in a while......if you have the will power ! :lol:

However, the whole bag is 45 gm so that means that there is 16.2 gms of carb in the whole bag ! A quarter of a bag would not be going overboard therefore !

If I have an Indian I always have just a couple of Poppadoms as they are fairly low in Carbs and are as Sue says, much better than a Chapati or a Naan bread. Add some Mint Raita and pickles.....great starter.

Same with Prawn Crackers.....just a few. Trouble is they are all very moreish !!!!

Lol this is true having prawns isn't anything really to be worried about,But i guess going over the top in something can cause some side-effects i mean excessive amount can show some bad results.
But taking prawns in moderation is healthy.
