P is for Pepper #BlogchatterA2Z

Keto Pepper Chicken/ Murgh Kali Mirch is a flavourful recipe of chicken .cooked in kali mirch or black pepper which has a sharp pungent taste. the daughter asked for a keto pepper chicken. and the one I usually make is not keto so i modified it for her.  keto diet or rather, a way of life you can eat the foods that are generally considered taboo. the good foods, those with all the fats that really taste good.

the object of a keto diet is to compel your body to get into and stay in a glycogen deprived state. and maintain a mild state of ketosis (burning fats for energy). for this, you need to up the fat intake and restrict the carbs to a minimum. it is proven that get fat, not due to eating fat, but due to excessive carbs. the quantity in the recipe is for one serving only.

Keto Pepper Chicken/ Murgh Kali Mirch

back to my chicken keto pepper chicken/ murgh kali mirch is truly easy to cook . it took me just thirty minutes. it is a very popular recipe in north India. pepper is used in many dishes. my mom used kali mirch or pepper powder in most dishes. also, Kasuri methi which is a treasure house of flavours.

this Keto Pepper Chicken/ Murgh Kali Mirch is very easy and simple. the pepper powder gives a nice sharp taste to the otherwise bland gravy. usually,i use oil instead of butter and cashew paste instead of cream. but to make it keto, i used butter and cream.

for a one-pot meal try this boneless chicken biryani or this chicken spaghetti.
