Read on for more tips and possible substitutes to make your life easier. 

The Ingredients

This is such an easy recipe and I hope you will give it a go. 

Firstly, the Keto Massaman Curry Paste is so simple. I have a full recipe for you, and you will love how easy it is to make. For most of you, I am sure you will have all the ingredients in your well-stocked keto pantry.

As for the protein choose your favourite and the way you cut it. In a curry I do like chunky meat. However, if you want thinly sliced meats then go for your life. It will taste even more amazing if you make it the way you want.

Gluten Free Fish Sauce. Look for all of you make your choice of gluten free or not. There is also a vegan version of fish sauce called Fysh Sauce (with no anchovies at all).

How to Make it

Basically, this recipe is super simple.

I have included an option for a Thermomix Keto Massaman Curry Chicken recipe, as well as an Instant Pot Keto Massaman Curry Chicken recipe.

Just as easily this recipe could be converted for any slow cooker or pressure cooker to make your life simpler.

The main tip I have here is to brown your chicken. I love a little tinge of gold on my meat. If you are using thigh fillets and don’t sauté, then you end up with soft gelatinous meat. If you prefer that way, go for your life. For me though I prefer the added flavour of well sautéed chicken.

    Delicious. Although I am glad I only put 2 de-seeded chillies in as for me it was slightly too spicy 🌶 so I added a tablespoon of sweetener.
    I also used lamb. This was beautiful.

    How would you adjust this for a slow cooker please?
