A couple of weeks ago I made a Keto Chicken Tikka and the idea was to follow it up with a Chicken Tikka Masala, a keto one of course. So today we cook up this delicious keto curry aka the chicken tikka masala. It’s a pretty heavy on the calories. I had never actually eaten the UK style of tikka masala and I went through a number of recipes and videos to see what the fuss was all about. In my recipe I used green peppers but skipped any full onions or other coloured peppers to keep the carbs on the lower side. I also decided to substitute the cashew paste with almonds since cashews are quite high in carbs. Anyway enough jibber jabber, enjoy!
Combining chicken tikka with the gravy
What you have to do when it comes ot counting macros for this recipe is club it along with our Keto Chicken Tikka recipe. I have made a separate recipe on MFP for just the gravy. So it’s a pretty big portion as I divided it into two servings, however you can always break it up into 4. I have to say I found this dish to be really tasty and our Keto naan will be the perfect accompaniment for this Tikka masala. If you are a vegetarian you can substitute the chicken with Paneer. Funny thing though is I don’t think anyone ever makes tikka masala with meats other than chicken. I’ve heard of Fish Tikka but never a fish tikka masala.
