Priya’s Keto Chicken Vindaloo

Keto Chicken Vindaloo Recipe

India is a very vast country, every state has it’s unique recipes and spices.  Vindaloo actually comes from a Portuguese meat dish called “carne de vinha d’alhos”. This recipe was originally used for making spicy mutton and is now used for making chicken too. The Portuguese used wine for marination but in its present form you use vinegar to do the same job.

Priya’s Keto Sunshine Dip

Keto Sunshine Dip

If you check the ingredients of this dip you will realise that almost every ingredient is Keto friendly. You can make some extra and store it in the refrigerator. It goes well with all kinds of veggies, salads and eggs too. I am always on the look out for dips, chutneys and pickles that can be integrated in the Keto lifestyle. I miss the spices and the hotness of Indian food.

Ingredients

Procedure

  1. Put the cottage cheese, Greek yogurt and cream in a blender or mixer.
  2. Once blended well transfer the contents to a bowl.
  3. Add the veggies, salt, pepper, drops of stevia and vinegar.
  4. Mix well and chill.
  5. Use it as a dip with your salads or just dig into it when you are starving.
Keto Sunshine Dip

Tip: There is an Indian twist to this dip. Once you complete all these steps, heat some olive oil and drop some mustard seeds, dried red chillies, and curry leaves in it. Once they start spluttering pour this tadka over the dip and mix gently. If you drop the carrots the carb content will go down even further, intact you can omit all vegges and just make the dip too. You can also use capsicum in all three colors to brighten up the dish.
