Indian Keto Recipes

No more ditching your miraculous western influenced diet plan in between. Here is a healthier version of Indian keto recipes to help you lose weight without compromising on your Indian taste buds.

Learning about a new weight loss diet always seems promising. We get all excited initially and start following a particular diet like a GM diet or a ketogenic diet to lose weight without compromising on our health. But, most of us end up ditching our ideal diet plans mid way because of the lack of eating options like Indian keto recipes. Whenever we read about such diets, they usually include foods and recipes which seem quite difficult to find and make in Indian context. 

Indian eating habits, foods, condiments and cooking style are entirely different from the rest of the world. Thus, it becomes increasingly different for an Indian to follow such fancy western diet plans with their Indian meal options. 

Ketogenic diet for weight loss is one such diet plan that has been applauded time and again for its excellent weight loss results. 

To help you follow the ketogenic diet without making any compromises on your Indian taste and flavors, we have compiled some healthy keto Indian recipes here
