Indian takeaway?

This is going to probably sound like a really odd question, but is it ok to have an Indian takeaway when pregnant? The only reason I ask is because sometimes the chicken in the curry has a slight pink colour to it. I don't think it's ever undercooked but not sure if that would do harm to baby? Currently 25 weeks pregnant and it's my birthday and craving a korma 😂

I had them with no issues :) go for it, but maybe cut in to each piece of chicken to check x

I have had many times ! No issue for me but maybe spices could cause acid for some people

Absolutely!

I had one last night. If you are worried about the meat go veggie. That's what I have done.

I’d say have some ice cream ready after your meal to avoid acid reflux! Also sometimes it’s pink but not because it’s undercooked.. you will notice it’s undercooked if it’s harsh and hard to cut through with knife etc

Yeah as long as everything is properly cooked

Yes 🙌 it’s 100% safe

Absolutely yes!! 🙌🏼 the pink is most likely from the spices! I’ve eaten many Indians in both my pregnancy’s xx

You can put in the microwave for a bit longer if worried but curries tend to have lots of great herbs and spices in them that are good for you x

Definitely. My main craving last pregnancy was curry of any kind so had lots of Indian takeaways and never had a problem

Awwww enjoy your indian!!!! X

The main thing is the hygiene rating or/and the reviews. And going for the food you know you can digest regardless the cuisine

I mean south Asians eat curry regularly while pregnant! Ull be fine

Yeah it’s 100% okay. Enjoy girl that’s some good food

Curries are my main staple of food in my culture and all the women have been fine for centuries 😆 because it’s from a take away , tell them you’re pregnant and for them to make sure it’s well cooked. Avoid eating salad that isn’t washed and cut yourself too x

You could microwave it when you get it to be extra sure it's cooked to temp. But I'm sure it's fine!
