If you are same like me, on a keto diet and looking for more ideas to prepare your keto meals, then here it is with the recipe! Bored of omelette, boiled egg, grilled chicken? Well, I made myself a thick creamy Keto Chicken Curry with high fat low carbs, you should try it too! 

Keto Chicken Curry

Yield - 5 servings
Prep - 10 minutes
Cook - 30 minutes

Ingredients:
4 Tomatoes cut into wedges (Giant - RM1.99 per pkt with 8 tomatoes) - RM1
2 whole bulbs of crushed Garlic (Giant - RM1.54 with 5 bulbs) - RM1
8 tablespoons of Olive Oil - RM1
2 tablespoons of Unsalted Butter - RM1
1 packet of A1 Instant Chicken Curry Sauce (Giant - RM5.04 per pkt) - RM5.04
1.5kg of Chicken (Giant - RM5.89 per kg - Weekend Fresh Saver) - RM8.84
1 head of Broccoli (Giant - RM2.49 per pc - Weekend Fresh Saver) - RM2.49
1 head of Romaine Lettuce (Giant - RM1.99 per head) - RM1.99
250ml of Coconut Milk (Giant - RM1.99) - RM1.99

Total Cost - RM24.35
Cost per serving - RM24.35 / 6 = RM4.06


Instructions:

  1. Cut tomatoes into wedges, crush garlic and cut the chicken into all equal size.
  2. Heat up olive oil and butter in a large pot and fry garlic until brown to release the flavor. 
  3. Add tomatoes wedges into the pot as the heat increases the lycopene (茄红素) content, as well as the antioxidant levels. 
  4. Mix in a packet of A1 Chicken Curry Sauce and all the chicken into the pot until aromatic. 
  5. Add in 250ml of water (depending on the curry thickness of your liking) and let it boil.
  6. Add broccoli and coconut milk into the pot.
  7. Simmer over low heat until the chicken becomes tender. 
  8. Serve with romaine lettuce as the side dish. 


I got most of my ingredients from Giant Malaysia because it is located very near to my house. As a frugal #YourFinanceDoctor , I only buy when it is a good bargain, especially the chicken, which only limited to 3 birds per customer! 😎😎😎



As it is quite a last minute decision to cook Chicken Curry, I ended up buying the ready made A1 Instant Chicken Curry Sauce, which could be contributing to the carbs. After checking from the nutrition facts at the packaging, I was shocked to find that the Carbohydrate consists of 58g, while 20g of fat and 8g of Protein.




Although it is still high fat, but the carbohydrate certainly at max level (recommended at 20g maximum). In other words, the other meal of the day would have to be all fat and protein without carb, which means back to egg again! 😂😂😂

Anyway, I hope you like my recipe! Do take out the A1 Instant Chicken Curry Sauce and replace with curry powder, paprika, chili, onion, ginger. This way you can control on the carb level! 

Happy Keto-ing!
