I have for you today an exceptional and interesting recipe of a Keto Paneer Parantha, which will surely make your Keto way of living more interesting and yummy. The ultimate Keto Parantha has arrived and I urge you to give it a try right away. It is yummy, filling, crispy, nutritious and Keto friendly.
So my Mom was very worried about what I will eat in the Navratri, as she knows that I abstain from non-vegetarian food in this period of prayers and meditation.
She gave me this idea of researching whether we can have Water Chestnut Flour in the Ketogenic Lifestyle and that got me thinking. Firstly, in the Navratri most people have two meals or a single meal a day, so that kind of Intermittent Fasting only helps in balancing the macros and opens new avenues to try something new.
So I did my research and would like to share with all of you that Chestnut Flour has some very amazing health properties and can be had once in a while.
It is GLUTEN FREE! CHOLESTEROL FREE!
Check out the benefits:
And that’s not all it is also high in fiber, hence the net carbs come down to a figure that most people will be able to adjust in their daily macros and calories intake.
So I decided to tread carefully first time and try and make a bread or parantha out of it. The recipe today is of a Keto Parantha with a stuffing of fresh paneer or cottage cheese.
The Water Chestnut Flour is easily available in all stores and you can always store it in an airtight container. So because I was cooking with this flour for the first time I had no clue of how much water I will need to knead it into a dough. I started with little water and happy to share that it is pretty manageable.
I first wanted to make it a stuffed parantha, but the dough cannot be rolled out such for that. So instead I kneaded the grated paneer in the dough itself and that worked as a binding factor.
I am going to try Pakoras next! So watch out for that.

- Roll the flour with a light hand and do not try to make it very thin, as then it might stick to the bottom.
