If somehow, you are not able to get use to these plain keto rotis, we can help you make these more flavourful for your palate. While kneading dough with almond flour, add red chilli powder to taste, some cumin seeds and garam masala. You can also add a bunch of finely chopped coriander leaves.
4. Keto Naan
This one might turn out to be your favourite - because it is filled with cheese, and there's no one we know who doesn't like it. Instead of flour, cheese slices are topped with spices like kalonji seeds, white sesame seeds(optional), dried fenugreek seeds, and baked to make a fluffy keto naan.

Keto naan is a must-try recipe on weight loss diet.
5. Cauliflower Roti
Yes, you don't really always need flour to make rotis. Grated cauliflower can as well do the job. Grate cauliflower, for 2 cups of cauliflower, add 1 tbsp psyllium husk. Add some salt and green chillies, and knead lightly. Since this is a mixture and not kneaded flour, you will have to place the mixture on a flat surface and flatten with your hands. You can also use parchment paper and when the roti is flattened, simply toss on the tawa to cook.
We are sure that with so many wonderful options, you will no more be wary of following keto diet for weight loss, while continuing to enjoy your favourite Indian meals.
