India is a vast country and every state has something unique to offer. When you travel down south, you will notice abundant use of Coconut in all the dishes. Dishes like dosa, idlis, wada and uttapam are world-famous. But sadly they are not pro-Keto, since they all are made from rice flour and lentil flour. But there is one thing, which has to be pro-Keto, the absolutely delicious Keto Coconut Chutney. If you haven’t eaten this, then you really are missing something. You need very few ingredients and a powerful grinder. This chutney can be stored in the refrigerator for a week and can be used as a dip for veggies. You can also eat it with any Keto meal as an accompaniment. When you go out shopping, just ensure that you get an absolutely fresh coconut for this recipe.
