Winter is finally here, and along with it comes the irresistible urge for comforting soups, aromatic curries, and flavorsome dishes. Today, I have a delightful recipe to satisfy your cravings – Keto compatible Fish in Tomato Gravy! What makes this dish even more appealing is that it’s simple to prepare and doesn’t include onions, turmeric, or ginger.
Traditionally, this fish curry is enjoyed with rice, but I encourage you to try it with toasted Keto Bread for a divine experience. I’ve used Malli fish in this recipe, as it’s easily available in my area. However, feel free to substitute it with your preferred fish and adjust the macros accordingly. In some regions, this fish is also known as Calbasu or Black Rohu.
One of the remarkable qualities of this fish is its thick layer of fat beneath the skin, which adds a delightful richness to the dish. So let’s dive into the recipe and create a lip-smacking Keto Fish in Tomato Gravy that will warm your soul and satisfy your taste buds.
