25+ Simple & Fragrant Low FODMAP Curry Recipes

Low FODMAP curry recipes

If you’re looking for some midweek meal inspiration and fancy some bold flavours, then having a quick and easy curry recipe up your sleeve is always a good idea!

Although your favourite takeaway is sadly not an option whilst you’re following a low FODMAP diet, that’s not to say you can’t still enjoy your own homemade version. Even better, there’s no reason why it can’t be just as quick and tasty as a takeaway. Plus, it’ll be healthier and save you money, too - win-win!

In this post, we’re going to share our favourite Bay’s Kitchen curry recipes for all dietary preferences, whether you fancy a light fish dish or would prefer to try one of our vegetarian or vegan options. You’ll also find information on low FODMAP side dishes and condiments, transforming any simple curry into a FODMAP-friendly feast for the whole family to enjoy!

Is a Traditional Curry Low FODMAP?

Traditional curry dishes are usually not low FODMAP, as they often contain high FODMAP ingredients such as onion and garlic. If you’re following a low FODMAP diet, it’s therefore always a good idea to check the ingredients carefully before consuming any pre-made curry dishes. It’s also best to avoid takeaways and restaurant dishes (as tempting as they may be!), as you don’t have control over the ingredients being used.

That’s the bad news out the way. The good news is that there are some simple swaps you can make to create delicious low FODMAP curries at home:

  • Onion and garlic: Swap for the green parts of spring onions or use garlic-infused oil
  • Chickpeas: Swap for lentils or use tinned chickpeas that have been rinsed well
  • Wheat flour: Use gluten-free flour or cornflour as a thickener
  • Honey: Swap for maple syrup or rice malt syrup
  • Cashew nuts: Swap for peanuts or use a small amount of cashews that have been soaked and rinsed well
  • Coconut milk: Use light coconut milk or swap for lactose-free milk
  • High FODMAP vegetables: Swap for low FODMAP vegetables such as carrots, spinach, peppers, and pumpkin

To make it easier for you, we've gathered together our favourite low FODMAP curry recipes below - so there’s no guesswork required.

How Bay’s Kitchen Can Help

Bay’s Kitchen was created to help you cook delicious, low FODMAP meals with confidence. When our founder Bay was first diagnosed with IBS and learning all about a low FODMAP diet, she found it tricky navigating food labels and understanding what exactly would trigger her symptoms. This experience led her to create Bay’s Kitchen. 

Since then, we have developed a wide range of globally-inspired stir-in sauces, with firm favourites such as Mild Korma, Tikka Masala and Thai Red Curry. This means that you can easily recreate your favourite dishes without worrying about high FODMAP ingredients. 

Whether you're craving a fiery sauce or a fragrant bowl of Korma, Bay's Kitchen are here to take the stress out of low FODMAP meal planning, proving that FODMAP-friendly food can be just quick, simple and delicious. Most of these recipes will be ready and on the table in just 30 minutes or less - the perfect option for a weeknight meal and big family get-togethers alike!

If you’re cooking from scratch or using a stir-in sauce, there are plenty of spices that are naturally low FODMAP and will give your curry a kick! Here are some of our go-to low FODMAP spices that we’d advise keeping your spice rack stocked up with. 

Note: Make sure to consult the Monash University App to verify spice quantities and ensure they align with low FODMAP guidelines. 


  • Cumin 
  • Curry powder (without onion or garlic) 
  • Ginger 
  • Lemongrass 
  • Paprika 
  • Saffron 
  • Turmeric 
  • Chilli flakes or powder

Low FODMAP Curry Accompaniments

There are several traditional accompaniments and side dishes that we expect to see alongside our curry! Thankfully, most of these are either already low FODMAP, or can be made low FODMAP with a few little tweaks. 

Once again, make sure to check the label for any high FODMAP ingredients if the item you’re purchasing isn’t low FODMAP-certified. Here are some of our favourites: 


  • White or brown rice: Both white and brown rice are low FODMAP and serve as excellent bases for absorbing the flavours of curries. Basmati or pilau rice is our side dish of choice for many of the low FODMAP curry recipes listed above. 
  • Gluten-free naan bread: A perfect low FODMAP option for mopping up every last drop of curry sauce, just make sure to choose a gluten-free option (or, if making your own, opt for gluten-free flour). 
  • Low FODMAP samosas: Samosas are a moreish starter or side to complete any curry night, but they can include a number of high FODMAP ingredients. Try making your own with this quick and easy recipe
  • Coconut-based raita: A cooling condiment that can be made low FODMAP with coconut yoghurt (according to Monash University, a 125g serving of coconut yoghurt is considered to be low FODMAP).
