Headbanger’s Kitchen – Chicken Tikka Masala | Keto Recipes

A couple of weeks ago I made a Keto Chicken Tikka and the idea was to follow it up with a Chicken Tikka Masala, a keto one of course. So today we cook up this delicious keto curry aka the chicken tikka masala. It’s a pretty heavy on the calories. So dig in and enjoy!

Now what you have to do is club this recipe along with our Keto Chicken Tikka recipe. Now I’ve split my recipe into 2 servings which is quite a big serving but you can split it into 4 if you like.
