Mexican/Indian food are one of the most loved and tasty food in this whole world, personally I am a big fan of both of them. This week I did some experiments as my urge to try street style food was not on halt. So I tried my version of Low Carb Tortillas / Chapati while maintaining Keto macros. I know there are tons of recipes on insta but most failed to impress me. And what’s life without some innovations, right ?
I know many people start Keto diet but fall of the wagon in between since they feel they have to sacrifice a lot for their favourite food, so my friend this recipe is for you, check other recipes here .
Regular wheat / corn flour contains too much carbohydrates , which kicks you out of Ketosis. Even single bite can do the damage. If you want to get back into Ketosis fast , you can do IF, check here for details.
The Benefits of Almond Flour
Almond flour is one of the best alternative for Keto diet which helps you in maintaining macro’s . 2 tbsp. of flour has 3 gm of Carbs which is amazing !!! If you want to check more details about nuts nutrient contents, see here .
Note:- Coconut flour is one of the alternative but is difficult to bind , so you can use physillium husk with that. Check more Keto flours here
why should we use Almond flour:
