Takeaway note:

Since Indian staples are rich in carbs, getting used to a keto diet can pose as challenging initially. However, you can use low carb sources for basic components of the meals that do not send your calculated macronutrient intake out of proportion.

Including the likes of low carb flour options, butter, paneer, cheese, dairy, gram four, poultry, lean meat, fatty fish, common local veggies and fruits can be very nutritious in addition to helping create an Indian-friendly keto plan.
