Keto diet for weight loss: You can have these low-carb rotis with veggies and even chicken
- This keto roti is low in carb and high in protein
- It is made with almond flour
- You can top the roti with a dollop of ghee
The craving for rice or roti/ chapati or parantha is quite possible for people following the keto diet. Ketogenic diet is one which involves eating carbs in low quantities, fats in high quantities and protein in moderate quantities. Eggs, avocadoes, low-carb non-starchy vegetables, leafy greens, chicken, etc are some of the ideal keto foods. However, chapatis or rotis (flatbread) form an essential part of Indian diet. People eat rotis for breakfast, lunch and even dinner. All in all, it is justified to claim that an Indian meal is incomplete without flatbread.
Keto-friendly roti that can help you with weight loss
Hasika Prasad, an avid keto-follower, recently shared a keto-friendly roti which is low in carbs. All you need are a few ingredients which might already be there in your kitchen if you are following the keto diet.
To prepare this keto-friendly roti, you need 2 cups of almonds flour, 1 cup of flaxseed meal, 3 tbsp of psyllium husk powder, 1 tsp salt, 2 cups hot water and some oil or ghee. Prepare the dough by mixing all dry ingredients. Add hot water and mix it to form a dough.
Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Let the dough cool down completelty. Add some oil and ghee and knead well. Now take small portions of the dough and roll them into balls.
Place each ball of dough on a parchment paper and roll using a rolling pin. Cook the roti on a tawa on medium high heat. Cook it on both sides till they get golden brown. Top it with a dollop of ghee and enjoy it with your low carb veggies or a homemade chicken meal.
According to Prasad, this keto roti can be a game-changer for Indian ketoers, she mentions in her Insta post. Net carbs per roti is nothing more than 1.6 gm, she adds.
