LOW-CARB BACON, TUNA & VEGGIE CASSEROLE

My sister, her hubby and 2 kids were about to land in Mumbai city and we literally had an hour before heading to the airport. And even though I knew they would have eaten on the flight in, I had strict instructions to make sure there was something edible and ready for devouring purposes. How…

KETO FLOURLESS PEANUT BUTTER & CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

I’ve been travelling a fair bit these past couple of weeks and I’ve tried to stay on keto as much as I could but I’m not going to kill myself with guilt over a few (or a little more, whatever) transgressions. I’m proud of the fact that I prepped myself for success by taking a…

NO Potato Mash

So we know that potatoes are starchy tubers that aren’t kosher on a low carb diet. If you didn’t, now you do. Sweet potatoes, potato products like chips, hash browns, fries, potato mash etc. are a complete no-no when you first start off on the keto journey. One of the things I missed the most…

KETOFIED CHICKEN A LA KIEV

When I crossed over to this low carb side of life I knew this was one of the recipes I could very easily keto-fy from my erstwhile carb loaded days. Everything stays the same except for the crispy breadcrumb-y coating, which is essentially what makes the damn dish! BUT, we have substitutes! So, yay! The…

The rains are upon us… they’re finally here!

BREAD-Y, SET, GO!!

I equate my loved ones to bread, I’m seriously THAT mental about it. My husband is the bread to my butter. My 4 legged son is the bun to my burger. You get my drift? I love me some warm toasty buttered bread.. Or to sop up some curry.. Or to sandwich some chutney and…

Roti on keto!

Yes, you read right! When I made this happy accidental discovery in the kitchen I couldn’t believe it. I actually invented something that I could cocoon my vegetable sabzis with? That I could wrap a bite of my prawn sukka with? That I could lather with ghee and a sugar free substitute and stuff my…

Stock up your Indian Keto Kitchen.

I restarted my Keto way of life again this year on the 10th of April 2016 after falling off the wagon twice, because of a few dental surgeries and some travelling. I realised I hadn’t prepared myself in advance- stocked up my pantry with things that I could fall back on in times of dire…

And it truly is a miracle veg. The things one can do with this big, rotund blob are just endless! Turking for some rice? Cauliflower!…

But what is this “Ketogenic Diet”?

Yup. This was the most commonly asked question when I started this blog. Apart from-what is phat? Don’t judge. My new readers are a mix of the young and the not so young. And while I didn’t really want to make this blog too heavy on the science behind The Ketogenic diet, because let’s face…
