How to make keto chicken curry:

  1. In a pestle and mortar grind together the cardamom seeds, cloves and black peppercorns. Then add all ingredients in the spice blend list along with the ginger, garlic and water.

  2. In a high speed blender, blitz the keto hana granola with almond milk for ~2 minutes until a creamy liquid forms.

  3. Heat a frying pan with 1 tbsp coconut oil to a medium-high heat. Add the cumin seeds, cardamom pod and cinnamon and allow to toast for 30 seconds or so until the cumin seeds change colour. Now pour in the spice paste with another tbsp coconut oil and stir continuously on a medium heat for ~3 minutes, this will allow the flavours of the spices to release. The paste should thicken.

  4. Dice the chicken and coat with 1 tsp of sea salt flakes. Add the diced chicken and allow to sear on a medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each side until the flesh is mostly white.

  5. Now pour in the granola and almond milk mixture and simmer for 8 minutes on a low-medium heat. Pour in the coconut cream and simmer for a further ~2 minutes.

  6. Add the lemon juice and salt to taste, and slice through a piece of chicken to check its cooked. Pick out the cardamom pod, bay leaf and cinnamon stick.

  7. Microwave the cauliflower rice or heat in a frying pan for 2 minutes until piping hot.

  8. Serve the curry alongside the cauliflower rice and garnish with fresh chopped coriander, chilli flakes and a sprinkle of keto hana cinnamon granola.
