As a first-generation Indian in the US, I grew up eating Indian food daily – for each meal – like really, each meal. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. So, by the time I was a pre-teen, I took it upon myself to learn to cook, mainly because I was desperately craving diversity and honestly, wanted lunches that looked more like what my friends’ parents were packing and less like a full Indian thali being coming out of my Wonder Woman lunch box.

My mom is a fabulous, the best, cook, so the food was delicious and she gave me a solid base as a home chef. So, this take on delicious Keto Tandoori Chicken keeps it keto and packs some heat because #1, I love spicy foods and #2, spices rev up the metabolism!

You can always turn down the heat – adjust this based on your preferences however you are in for a treat regardless! I serve this with cauliflower rice or keto naan and garnish with lots of cilantro!

Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects!
