A Simple Keto Recipe: Beef Madras made with Coconut Milk


The good thing about curries is that if you make them yourself, the majority are easy to fit into a ketogenic lifestyle. Especially the coconut based curries, with a little tweaking.

Ingredients – Serves 2

For the Madras Curry Paste

1 Chilli Pepper.

1tsp Ground Corriander

1tsp Ground Tumeric

1tsp Ground Ginger or 1cm cubed Fresh Ginger (grated)

1 Lemon

For the Curry

1tbs Ghee

1 medium Onion

4 cloves Garlic

400g cubed Beef Steak

150ml of Beef Stock

Fresh Coriander

1 can of Coconut Milk

Instructions – Prep Time: 10 minutes. Cooking Time: 1 Hour

Take the ingredients for the paste. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a mini food processor/blender. Chop the remaining paste ingredients and add to the blender. Blitz it into a paste. Add a bit of water if needed.

For the curry, I use a non-stick pan with a lid but use whatever you prefer. Melt the Ghee in the pan, on a medium heat. Chop the Onion and Garlic, and add. Cook for a few minutes, and then add the Paste. Cook for a few more minutes. Add the cubed Beef (you can brown the beef before the onions and Garlic, if you prefer), and stock. Ensure the beef is covered in the stock. Add more water if needed. Bring to the boil and simmer for an hour or so with the lid on.

5 minutes before you are ready to serve, add the coconut milk and allow to warm through. Add Fresh Coriander just before you serve.

I often just eat it like a stew, as it is. However I also sometimes do steamed side veg, or cauliflower rice. Go wild!!!

The full meal per serving; you are looking at around 700 Calories, Total Carbs 12g (7%), Protein 63g (38%) and Fat 44g (55%). These figures are taken from MyFitnessPal, so you could argue the figures up and down a bit but you get my point. You can play around with the recipe to suit your macro’s. For example I use quite a lot of beef, so you can use less beef or use more coconut milk and less stock.
