Keto  White Butter Chicken

Keto White Butter Chicken

A Keto  White Butter Chicken recipe for all those Keto followers out there with Indian taste buds, here is an Indian version of keto to delight your palate.  Indian food has so many spices and we have a huge range of flavours to choose from. Using even one amongst them adds a flavorful punch to a dish. Eating out while on Keto is like chomping on a low-fat burger! Homemade ketogenic food is cooked keeping in mind the right ingredients, portions and calories are tastier at the same time.

Strangely tomatoes add extra calories to a dish which you should try to avoid sometimes. This White Butter Chicken from The Headbangers Kitchen does not use any tomatoes and as the name states it is white but it is still a Butter Chicken.

Butter chicken is a universal favourite all over the Globe and this recipe has been adapted to suit the Keto terms.

Well if you are looking for something more like the original butter chicken with that rich tomato flavour then try my original recipe here.  So give these a go and tell me which one is your favourite. If you are a vegetarian you can easily substitute the chicken for Paneer and get yourself a Paneer Makhani.
