Low Carb Keto Chicken and Eggplant Biryani
Today I’m going to show you how to make a low carb chicken and eggplant biryani.
But first I want to share this great Bollywood dance number that I just found. It is truly off the hook.
Any time I make Indian food, I like to have Indian music playing in the background.
It just sets the mood. So today I listened to a song called “Ek Do Teen” from the 1988 Bollywood film Tezaab. (video above) I love all the costume changes and killer dance moves. Plus, it’s comforting to know that the 1980’s neon craze didn’t spare India. (No one made it out of the 1980’s without a hot pink something or other.)
This is a low carb take on a classic Indian rice dish. I’ve subbed in cauliflower rice for basmati rice to increase the veggies and lower the carbs. To get the spices just right, I based my recipe on a great low carb chicken biryani recipe that I found on Two Sleevers. The Indian spices blend beautifully and infuse the chicken and vegetables in this spicy and flavorful dish. And while normal biryani has anywhere from 50-80g of carbohydrate, this low carb version only has 10g net carbs. Not too bad. Not too bad at all.
