Chicken saag is a popular and tasty Indian dish. To make our recipe keto-friendly, we have made a few changes—but have kept all the amazing flavors, so you’ll barely notice the difference.
Saag refers to leafy green vegetables found in the Indian subcontinent, such as spinach and collard greens. For this dish, we use spinach, which is both full of nutrients and easy to find in most food markets.
While most chicken saag recipes use cream, we have swapped that out for coconut cream and ghee. Ghee is made from butter, but it’s a clarified version whereby all of the impurities are removed. So, although this dish isn’t completely dairy-free, it is suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
Making this dish is super simple and only takes a few minutes of prep and about 30 minutes to cook. You start by melting the ghee and toasting the spices and then cooking the onions, garlic, and ginger. Spinach is then added and cooked down. This mixture is then blended to create an aromatic paste. The chicken is then cooked in this paste with coconut milk until complete. The whole dish is then served over cauliflower rice.
If you’re looking for a super simple and magnificently tasty Indian-inspired keto-friendly meal that everyone will love, this chicken saag recipe is definitely worth a try!
