Shrimp and Cauliflower Curry

Keto Recipes > Dinner

I used to make a ton of curry before venturing onto a ketogenic diet, but I had to find a way to get rid of some of the ingredients. No flour to make a roux, no mango chutney for the fruitiness and spice, no milk…hmm, it was a tough one – but I think I got it worked out!

Though it does take some time to thicken up (thanks Xanthan Gum for speeding that up!) it’s well worth the wait. This delicious keto curry will fill your house with the smell of the aromatic spices. Cooking longer without the lid is normally what I do – I am not the biggest fan of curry soup, I prefer my curry to be hearty, and full of texture.

Now, this isn’t a traditional Indian or Thai curry, but it resembles the stuff that I got as a kid living in England. Every chip shop has curry sauce, and this is similar to that. Very rich, thick, and unmistakably unique.

I know there’s a LOT of spices in this recipe. But trust me – each one plays its part. Whether it’s bringing a sense of fruitiness, spice, savory, or adding a boost in flavor – each and every component is needed. The only few that you could get away with leaving out is cardamom and coriander. They both add floral notes, but if you don’t have them on hand, don’t worry too much about going out to buy a jar.
