It’s a good idea to switch things up every once in a while. And, if you haven’t tried preparing Indian food at home yet, it’s definitely going to add a bit of excitement in the kitchen, and at the table.
Even more, these keto Indian food recipes have amazing flavors and you’ll find a bit of everything below from curries to succulent chicken dishes. For those who want meals with dessert or might be vegan, you’ll find some recipes for you too!
Indian food has plenty of recipes that are keto-friendly in their traditional form. This cuisine uses lots of veggies, spices, and other low-carb foods such as paneer and coconut milk.
So, yes, Indian food does have numerous keto options to try. Of course, rice, naan, and other types of bread are not. But, even so, there are keto versions for most Indian bread and you will find a few below.
When ordering Indian food in a restaurant get grilled or tandoori meats, paneer, or curries. For the latter option, I recommend you ask if sugar or other hidden carbs are used. Avoid bread, rice, and any other type of carb.
Cauliflower rice is an excellent option and you can customize it with your favorite herbs and spices.
You can also opt for another low-carb veggie-based side which would work just as well.
Indian food has some pretty intense flavors which I find highly enjoyable and I hope you will too. If you’re new to cooking low carb Indian recipes make sure to have these spices and ingredients in your pantry as they are staples in Indian cuisine:
– Indian Five Spice
– Black Mustard Seed
– Cayenne Pepper
– Ground Turmeric
– Garam Masala
– Curry Powder
– Coconut Milk (Unsweetened)
