just to share with you that i normally buy my cheese, butter, almond flour, nuts…from bakery ingredients shops that are selling much more cheaper than retail shops and supermarket. eg. i get raw almond and almond flour around RM39-41/kg, walnut around the same price. mozzarella RM50+/2kg block, cheddar RM70+/2kg block, cooking cream RM5/pack, while coconut flour RM12+ at Aeon….while i travel in eastern Europe, i’ll buy MCT oil and coconut oil which is ridiculously cheaper than Malaysia, eg, pure MCT oil is selling RM30+/400ml while the one i found in KL is selling RM60+ 300ml and VCO is RM20+/1l while RM60+ in Malaysia. also, in Eastern Europe, animal fats are easily available and cheap, if you happened to travel here you can pack some home.
Hi Suraya, great to hear that you are on the keto diet! I’ve been on it with a strict training regime at Axiom. Technically i’ve done it before without realising last year, but i’m back on it again and it’s one the best lifestyle changes i’ve seen for me. I came across your site because I was searching for low carb sweeteners. I’m finding that a problem unless i buy Stevia online which is possible. Anyway for recipes do checkout ketodietapp. It’s awesome and I will experimenting on recipes of my own too on my website. Warrior on with the keto! 🙂

Can you feel when you are in ketosis


I just started the keto diet and being Malaysian like you its so hard to give up the good ol Malaysian carb laden food like the karipap(which is my fav). So stumbling on to your blog is heaven sent. I am so going to try this karipap out. Thank you for making this keto friendly. Im gonna keep following your blog to see if you manage to ketofy(is this even a legit word…lol) any more Malaysian food.


My friend Hazim told me that it was his favorite breakfast pre-keto, where he could easily go to a street vendor in his village and grab one for around 70 cents. He also told me that the condiments vary depending on who is making it. Sometimes the rice has no seasoning, other times sambal (we use homemade sambal) and a small fried egg is included. Typically you can also see fried peanuts, dried anchovies, cucumber, and other pickled items included.
For salmon, I found that quality is directly linked to the price 🙁 I mean, sometimes Tesco and Giant would sell them at good prices but they seem to be, I dunno, off in a way. Rather than not eating salmon, I’ve decided to buy cheaper cuts and cook that instead. I’d buy the head and make salmon fish head curry. If you like fish curry, try this – so good!

Is Banana allowed on keto diet


I tend to get into deep ketosis on my third week of the month due to ramping up of exogenous ketones derived from MCT oils and other longer chain oils, and it’s not too good for my T3 and T4 markers so I usually get in a carb refeed on the last week of the month just so that I don’t stress my thyroid too much. Still, eventhough I do carb refeeds, they’re after heavy workouts and I only go for a maximum of 100g of carbs.

Hi Neha, my recipe uses baking powder and not baking soda. I think this is the reason why your bread had a funny taste. Baking soda is much stronger than baking powder (I think twice as strong). The xanthan gum helps improve the structure of the bread – almond flour bread is a little more fragile than wheat bread because of the lack in gluten. But your bread will still work without the xanthan.

Was googling more info about keto because my husband is on it too. Planning what to make for him for lunch and dinner can be a hassle it’s always scrambled eggs with avocado or cheese and lamb shoulder and salad/broccoli whatever other sayur available. Occasionally we make sup ekor coz there’s a lot of fat in there. I guess males prefer manly fat as I like to call it, and your menu looks do-able for me as a female. Haha

Hi! I live in Europe but I’m a Sabahan who goes home every year for a couple of months for Chinese New Year. So I started keto about 2.5 months ago for weight loss and the result is pretty good.

This recipe is perfect. I did half a batch and made six rolls. I used the correct amount of almond flour simply because I didn’t have the nuts in my pantry. These rolls are perfect and moist. I also added some pieces of chopped apple as a treat because it’s apple season and my goal was low carb not Keto. I’m so happy I found this recipe. With winter coming this will be a great treat.


If you want to spend more, fried chicken or beef is usually added to the dish. But, we decided to keep it pretty simple and mimic the street food you can get.

But, this is a pretty hard ingredient to find in the rest of the world, he decided it would be best to skip it.

Hi Mark, the nutrition box states 1 serving (slice) out of 12. SO, if you wanted to calculate the nutrition for the entire bread, you’d just have to multiply it by 12. I’m sorry, but I did not weigh the bread so I cannot give you the nutrition per 100 g. There’s a good (free) nutrition calculator on the website sparkrecipes.com that you can use. Or download the KetoDietApp, it also has a good one. Glad you like the bread though!

Hi Suraya…..stumble on yr site while surfing for healthy oils as i make my own oils namely coconut, peanut, sunflower and flaxseed….own consumption and selling to close relatives and friends. Since my husband’s episode of ” heart attack” few years ago, i’ve started realizing that our staple diet among malaysians are full of sugars, fast food and carbs.

Do Blue Zones eat eggs


This is without a doubt the best keto bread I have tried to date. The taste and texture are spot on! I did add half a tsp of cinnamon and about 5 drops of stevia because I’m making this to replace homemade whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread. Reader beware this bread is dangerously good! I definitely need a smaller loaf pan to get a more square sandwich bread shape, the 9×5 made a flat thin loaf.

The best part about this recipe is that it’s simple, and once you have it down, you can replicate this keto friendly bread any time you want. I’ve been making a low carb loaf every Sunday for the past few weeks and would recommend that to anyone. It’s so nice to have a loaf of bread at your disposal when you’re on a low carb diet. It almost feels like cheating. Check out this recipe and start making the best keto bread you’ve ever tried today!

If you’re not a fan of baking but you’re a fan of eating bread, there are places to get keto friendly bread these days. If you’re lucky, you may be able to find a loaf of “Paleo Bread” in the freezer section at Whole Foods Market. This bread is going to cost you over $10 per loaf, but it is made of good ingredients and is a few grams of carbs per slice. There’s also rumors of ALDI carrying a new Zero-Carb bread, but it sells out fast and we haven’t been able to review it. Hopefully in the near future there will be more local buying options for low carb bread, but for now, those are your only options.

Reading all of these and I may be able to help with some of the issues people have. As far as doubling the recipe, works great for me, just have to increase the temp to 425 to start, first 10 minutes, then drop to 325 for the remainder. Higher start temp gives it the jump you need, lower temp after gives it the ability to bake without burning. Milled flax seeds add a slight bit of unnecessary oils, not much, but oils work best with normal flour. Try whole flax seed on top instead. I have been making this bread alot lately with no issues, I hope no one gets shys away from this recipe because of poor results, just keep trying. You will be glad you did.
Place the macadamia nuts into a food processor fitted with an S knife blade. Pulse just until the nuts reach a fine crumbly consistency, without large pieces. Make sure to pulse, don't leave the food processor running, to try to make flour and not nut butter. Scrape the sides as needed. The nuts may still begin to form nut butter a little, but try to avoid as much as possible.

Mine didn’t rise properly at all 🙁 I followed all your tips about room temp eggs, fresh baking powder, not over mixing to keep the air in but it is so flat. I added milled flax seeds as I like their texture in ‘bread’-y recipes; could they of caused the lack of rising? However, it LOOKS like bread with an actual crust and is VERY tasty with sesame and poppy seeds on top.. they’re just tiny slices

Curry puffs or as we call it, Karipap is a comfort food for Malaysians. Well, any Malaysian food is comfort food to us. 🙂 Karipap is also known as epok-epok and is quite similar to Empanadas. Karipap is a dough stuffed with dry curried minced meat or sardines and then fried. Some add a quarter of a hard boiled egg in it. On a regular day, I would make Karipap using ready made puff pastry as I don’t have a good hand with dough ( I always over handle it).

The best part about this bread is that it makes it so much easier to eat a low carb diet. Yes, there are some savage beasts (joking) that don’t miss bread at all and are happy to just eat bacon seven times a day, but if you’re anything like me, bread was a staple of your diet growing up and you still have a look of yearning in your eyes when they drop that bread basket in the middle of the table at family dinner. I feel your pain. This low carb bread recipe is your shoulder to cry on.
