Modifications for a Keto Diet
The biggest thing I’ve learned while tinkering with this recipe is how many variations there are. Some serve it over toast, some don’t hard boil the eggs, and some include tomato or apple.
Basically, anything goes. The base of the dish, eggs, is perfectly suitable for individuals on a keto diet, so no qualms there.
Perhaps to better suit American taste buds, some recipes include brown sugar. This dish doesn’t really need any sweetness, so I didn’t bother finding a keto workaround.
Moving on, some curried egg recipes include tomato. If you tolerate tomatoes well you certainly could, but I don’t think they’re necessary.
This keto curried eggs recipe is delicious when served over toast, so you could bake a quick batch of keto bread to use as a base.
What’s In Curry Powder?
Curry powder is a spice blend. Coriander, cumin, turmeric, chili pepper, and fenugreek are common ingredients. Red or black pepper, ginger, garlic, mustard, clove, cardamom, cinnamon, and fennel seed may also be included.
The earthiness of turmeric and cumin are played against sweet actors like cinnamon and clove, giving the spice a nice complexity.
Contrary to popular belief, it is not commonly used in traditional Indian cooking. A similar mix, garam masala, is used on the Indian subcontinent.
