Keto Chicken Korma

Keto diet is probably one of the most popular diet plan used by many these days. I heard about Ketogenic diet about 4 years, however it was only recently that one of my follower asked me to give her a Keto recipe. She wished for a keto recipe with indian twist. So, here I am with this “Keto Chicken Korma”.

This Chicken Korma is really easy to make, and does not need any expertise to assemble this at home. Best part is that if the keto word makes one feel that the taste won’t be great, show them this chicken korma and they will lick the fingers for sure.

The origin of Keto diet dates back to 1920 when doctors began using it to manage seizures among patients with epilepsy. Ketogetnic diet began with a nutritional plan made of carbohydrates, fat, and protein which forces the body to use fat instead of carbohydrates for energy. This process is called ketosis and it created two acids in the blood, ketones and decanoic acid, which our brain and body use to function.

A keto diet is devoid of carbs (carbohydrates), and is different from normal dietary recommendations, where emphasis is for low fats. A normal keto diet will have 75-80% fats, less than 5% carbs and 15-20% protein.

Back to this keto chicken recipe now, this recipe does not require any marination which means you don’t need to pre-plan and can make it when so ever you wish like, even on a busy weekday, as it barely takes 30 mins.
