Keto Tawa Paneer

The perfect Keto fat bomb: Tawa Paneer

Paneer is the staple protein for most vegetarians on the Keto diet. It’s also pretty easy to make at home if you don’t have access to it, in fact try my homemade paneer recipe. This recipe is pretty simple and will help you hit your fat macros and has almost no carbs per serving. It’s definitely something that you can whip up in a jiffy either as a snack or as your main course.

A perfect marinade for meat as well

This recipe doesn’t have to be vegetarian. If you like your meat, then you can swap the paneer for some chopped chicken thigh meat or perhaps some pork leg meat or even some filet beef. Ideally you want to use a meat that cooks quickly and can be pan fried. Avoid tough cuts like chuck roast, pork shoulder or pork belly etc. I have a feeling this would work great with seafood as well.

If you love Paneer I’ve got a bunch of other recipes that you will love. I’ve done a Paneer Makhanwala, Palak Paneer and even Paneer Bhurji.

  1. Great and simple dish. I ate the entire two servings at once because it was so tasty and now contemplating what to eat for dinner to maintain calories 🤦🏼‍♂️

    1. 494 calories is okay if you eveb take it three times a day (probably not)……. That’s inside your maintenance calorie level

    1. Ah sorry I had the wrong paneer selected. It’s fixed now. It’s about 3-4 carbs depending on which brand of paneer you use.
