If you are an Indian and are eating high fat and low carbohydrate diet, the post title itself will make you drool ! These are only things an Indian will understand , I mean the drooling over God damn Parathas !! And now I teach you how to make the keto parathas (keto roti) !
This recipe of Parathas is not only popular among Indian ketoers, but also people who followed by old blog previously. The level of appreciation I received for the parathas was really so good, that I am sure anybody trying this will surely be happy with the outcome.
What is a Paratha?
Parathas are nothing but an Indian common name given to the flat-breads made of wheat or rice flour.
Parathas are actually a staple food of North Indian people but are relished by Indians overall. The variety one can make using parathas as the base are infinite. Common ones include flat-breads with methi leaves (Methi-Fenugreek ), Spinach leaves, mashed potatoes, radishes, paneer (cottage cheese), etc. It is basically a huge meal in itself usually served with some curry.
How to keto-fy your rotis/naans/parathas?
The ketogenic or low carbohydrate version of the paratha(or keto roti or keto naan) is simply so much alike to the original paratha, you will forget the wheat flour ones ! We will substitute wheat flour with some low crab and keto-friendly flours like Fine Almond Flour, Coconut Flour [Gluten-free, Fiber-rich, Paleo friendly] and will create a paratha even tasty than the original ones. The process of mixing the flour with water and kneading it into a soft dough remains the same. Only difference is to keep the dough aside for 1 hour.
And other thing to add is the amount of net carbs– it is just 4g net carbs per paratha.
