My Curry Hacks... Are You Ready?


Takeout food can be oh-so-tempting, especially when you're tired and stressed. Your motivation levels have been left somewhere between the office door, your last holiday and your second child being born... we get it!


I grew up eating takeaway curry once a week. It was incredible.... although I'd argue the curry in London was a little better and more authentic than some of the stuff I've tasted on this side of the world - sorry kiwis!


Ordering your favourite curry from that cosy spot down the street might feel like a genius move, but more often than not I hear from clients that they're left with feelings of regret. I always encourage people NEVER to feel guilty about what they eat. Simply to be honest about whether or not the food they are putting in their mouths aligns with THEIR goals. It's a good compass.


The other downside to takeaway curry - even more recently we used to do it weekly - is the casual $80 bill for 2-4 meals - if you're conservative with your ordering.


What if we told you there's a way to enjoy a delicious curry without the guilt and the hole in your pocket?


My Curry Hacks: Plus My 5 Ingredient Low-Carb Naan Bread Recipe - ready for it? Enter our top-notch curry hacks, including a keto naan bread recipe that pairs perfectly with your homemade Indian feast.


Slow Cooker Bliss: Set It and Let It Do the Magic


Want to savour a mouthwatering curry without the fuss? Get yourself a slow cooker! In the morning, before the hustle and bustle takes over your day, toss in your choice of protein – chicken, lamb, pork, beef, you name it. Add a handful of chopped tomatoes, a dollop of tomato paste for that extra zing, and your favourite spices.


The best part? You don't need to follow a recipe to the letter. Get creative, adjust the flavours to your liking, and let the slow cooker work its enchantment. When you come back home, you'll be greeted by the intoxicating aroma of a perfectly cooked curry.

Frozen Cauliflower Rice: A Quick and Healthy Sidekick


When you're pressed for time and can't wait to dig into your curry creation, ditch the traditional brown rice that takes ages to cook. Instead, go for the superhero of sides – frozen cauliflower rice. It's keto-friendly, and it only takes around 5 minutes to heat up in the microwave or on the stove.


No hassle, no draining, and it's a lot kinder to your blood sugar compared to regular rice. Regular brown rice can send your blood sugar skyrocketing, packing the same glucose load as munching down on roughly 12 teaspoons of sugar. So, cauliflower rice is a smarter, equally scrumptious option.


Homemade Keto Naan: Low-Carb, High Flavour


Now, let's get to the pièce de résistance: keto naan bread. We all have sweet memories of indulging in warm, fluffy naan from our favourite Indian spots. But the truth is, that divine naan often comes with a hefty calorie and carb count.


Your usual naan packs around 360 calories and a whopping 68 grams of carbs – equivalent to about 14 teaspoons of sugar. That's a lot for your poor liver to handle, especially when you pair it with rice.


A Sassy Sidekick for Your Curry Cravings: Low Carb Naan Bread Recipe


So, why not whip up your own keto naan? Here's a simple recipe that's low in carbs but sky-high in flavour:


Ingredients to make 6:

  • 3 cups Mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tbsp Full-fat Greek yogurt

  • 2 large Eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour

  • 1 tbsp Baking powder

Toppings for a buttery garlic naan:

  • 50g Butter

  • 2-3 Fresh Garlic Cloves

  • 1 tbsp Fresh parsley (chopped)

Method:


10 Mins Prep + 15 Mins Cook Time - less than a takeaway?

  1. Preheat the oven to 191 degrees C and line an extra-large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Combine shredded mozzarella and Greek yoghurt in a large bowl. Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until it's smooth and well-mixed. Alternatively, use a double boiler on the stove if you feel fancy.

  3. In another bowl, stir together almond flour, baking powder, and eggs.

  4. Add the flour mixture to the cheese mixture while it's still hot. Knead it with your hands until you get a uniform dough.

  5. Shape the dough into a ball and, if it's sticky, pop it in the fridge for about 15 minutes until it's just slightly cool to the touch.

  6. Slice the dough ball into 6 pieces, roll each piece into a ball, and shape them into flatbreads about 1/4 inch (6 mm) thick.

  7. Bake the naan for 8 to 11 minutes, until it gets those tantalizing golden brown spots.

  8. While it's baking, mix melted butter with garlic powder and fresh parsley. Brush it over the naan.

  9. Stick the naan back in the oven for another 2 minutes until it's extra golden brown.

Now, get ready to savour your homemade keto naan with your curry.


It's a flavourful, low-carb twist on traditional naan bread that'll have you swooning.


By making these small but impactful changes to your curry night, you'll enjoy both the divine taste and the perks for your waistline and blood sugar.


So, are you feeling adventurous enough to give it a whirl?
