If you are following keto diet for weight loss, finding low-carb recipes for all three meals of the day could be quite a task. South Indian food lovers have to give up rice, which is a staple down south. If you set out to find healthy rice alternatives, cauliflower rice will pop up as the topmost suggestion everywhere. Being low in carbohydrates and high in various other nutrients, cauliflower can be grated to make flour for breads and can be used as a rice replacement too.
Coconut rice is everyone’s favourite south Indian meal. It is light, aromatic and extremely satiating. Making slight changes to the recipe to make it fit for keto diet, we discovered this equally delicious keto coconut rice made with cauliflower instead of regular rice. The rice meal imbues the same distinct south Indian flavours from coconut, whole red chillies, curry leaves and mustard seeds; so you won’t miss the usual coconut rice you’d been having before embarking on your weight loss journey.
