We were invited out for tea last night by our best Bucasia mates who are not Keto. Through the day we were discussing food and one of their favourite dishes they have quite regularly came up trumps for Keto! With them being fans of chillies, curries etc. I must admit I was a wee bit worried as to whether we would be able to handle the heat! Alas, not to worry our friends took good care of us and made it mild enough for us to give it a test run, as it turns out we both reckon we could handle it heated up a notch so, if you guys want to make this delicious recipe, go for it with regards to the heat!
There are a few variations of this recipe, I am using the one I ate last night. It is keto friendly, we had the Chicken Saag variation on it’s own, however, you could definitely have this dish with some cauliflower rice which I’m sure when I make it I will include the side of cauli rice. We will try this recipe with our Snake Valley venison also.

NOTE: The “Nutrition Facts” are without the cauliflower rice so be sure to calculate that into your macro’s if you add it to the recipe!
