Keto Paneer Butter Masala

Keto Paneer Butter Masala


Keto paneer butter masala is one of the most prominent paneer recipes that you can find in any Indian kitchen. Indian Recipes are always full of distinct savoury spices, and flavors. They fill your mouth with a combination of distinct but uniquely complimenting flavours.  Also, many of these recipes are partly already keto-friendly. Almost all curries in the Indian cuisine are keto-friendly. However, you cannot enjoy these curries by themselves. These dishes are mostly paired either with rice or naan bread, and the carb content of these ingredients is quite high which is why they’re not keto-friendly.

Now you don’t have to worry about it as this Keto paneer butter masala curry is creamy, spicy, tangy and tastes even better when served with a homemade keto garlic naan.

This recipe uses only staple foods and does not need any fancy ingredients except for cream.
