The popularity of the keto diet is no secret to the world! This fad diet has gained momentum in recent years due to its quick weight loss results. In this process, carbs are eliminated from the diet and replaced by high-fat foods. This leads to a metabolic state of ketosis in our body. Another reason for its popularity is the fact that you don't really have to give up on your favourite foods in this regime. Instead, you can give it a keto twist by replacing some ingredients in the recipe. Few such lip-smacking keto-friendly dishes are keto dosa, keto dal makhani, keto butter chicken et al.
We found you another such appetising dish that will make your keto diet regime a delicious affair - it's the keto-friendly chicken momos. All we have to do is to replace the momo wrap (generally made with maida) with blanched cabbage leaves!
In this recipe, we have to prepare a chicken filling with minced chicken, onion, spring onion, chives, sesame oil and some spices and wrap them with cabbage leaves and steam like regular momos. And a plate of keto-friendly chicken momo is ready in just a few minutes. Enjoy your meal!
