Keto Butter Chicken
Butter chicken is another one of those quintessential Indian dishes that you will find the world over in Indian restaurants. It’s not always Keto friendly though given that some recipes call for sugar and it does use a fair amount of onion and tomato which pushes up the carb count. I decided to amp up the regular butter chicken and turn it into a Keto treat. In my recipe I skipped the tomatoes to create a ‘white’ butter chicken. The standard recipe calls for tomatoes and also is reddish in colour. Anyway enough jibber jabber, enjoy the recipe.
Butter chicken for days
Well if you are looking for something more like the original butter chicken with that rich tomato flavour then try my original recipe here. I’ve also got a Bacon butter chicken and a butter chicken wings recipe. So give these a go and tell me which one is your favourite. If you are a vegetarian you can easily sub the chicken for Paneer and get yourself a Paneer Makhani.
A couple of things you can do differently for a most rustic version are chopping the onions instead of making a puree. I just find that the puree makes it more ‘restaurant’ like. But if you want a more homestyle dish then chop the onions fine. You also want to be well aware of the cooking time of the chicken if you are using breast meat as that tends to overcook quite easily. I’ve often had people complain about the chicken being tough.
Now if you’re new to cooking Indian food and you find this daunting I do have an easier 5 Ingredient Keto Butter chicken recipe. So give that a go and then maybe come back to this one.
