Curry is easy. No, really!
I know there are so many of you who would nope out of here in a hurry when you see the word “curry”. For some, curry invokes a picture of tons of spices you don’t have in your pantry, a long complicated process with lots of slow cooking and stirring. Yes, there are curries that have more steps than a witch’s brew – eye of newt and leg of lamb and three turns of the ladle counterclockwise on a full moon night – and my wife seems to especially love those that take several days of cooking, but this is not it. This five-ingredient Keto coconut curry is one of the easiest curries you’ll ever make, with all the deliciousness of an heirloom recipe.
This Keto coconut curry is very similar to a kerala stew, which means minimal heat but max flavour. It relies on just ginger, curry leaves, coriander and coconut milk to flavour the sauce, and you can use your protein of choice in it. If you want to kick up the heat a notch, consider adding a slit green chilli in it instead of chilli powder which will turn the whole thing a rather odd colour. This keto curry goes well with cauliflower rice, of course, but if you want to really, REALLY enjoy it, I would recommend you make it with my Keto dosa because the two are a match made in Keto heaven.
Keto coconut curry in a hurry
This keto coconut curry literally comes together in minutes, so it’s great for a weekday meal. The most time you’ll spend on this is to clean and julienne the ginger. You could also slice it up or use ginger paste but I find that ginger matchsticks eat the best. I’ve used skinless, boneless chicken thigh in this recipe but you can use chicken breast, shrimp or even fish as a substitute protein – just remember that they’ll all need different cooking times.
Curry leaves can be a little hard to come by for some people, but I’d recommend you get your hands on it because it gives it a taste that no other herb can quite replicate. In a desperate pinch, half a bay leaf and a pinch of lime zest might do the trick, though if you tell an Indian person that, they’ll get after you with a broom. Likewise, if you’re one of the unfortunate few to whom coriander or cilantro tastes like soap, just skip it altogether.
Of course, if you’re feeling ready for a curry challenge, allow me to direct you to some of my favourite curries – a fool-proof 5-ingredient chicken curry, or the cheat’s 5-ingredient butter chicken that no one will believe didn’t come from a restaurant. Cheers and keep currying!
