But since I’m on a Keto way of eating, I had to find an alternative. The filling is perfectly fine and I did not have to use any substitutes. The dough however, was my problem. Few days ago, I found a Keto empanada recipe and it took me back to my trip to Spain last summer and I had 2 empanadas and that reminded me of karipap. So after some research, I decided to use a Keto empanada dough recipe but fill it with dry mince meat curry to make Malaysian karipap. I was a little hesitant because using a cheese dough recipe for karipap as it seemed like an abomination to karipap, but after I had my first bite I can safely say, IT’S DAMN DELICIOUS! You can’t even tell that it was made from cheese!
This looks so good! I’m new to Keto/low carb so I have a question: I don’t have straight erythritol. I have stevia, Swerve granular and confectioner, xylitol and Lakanto classic (monkfruit/erythritol combo). Can any of these be used in place of the erythritol in your recipe, and if so, which is best, and is the amount the same or does it need adjustments? Thank you so much!

Can I eat yam on keto


Oh another think I thought I might mention. I use store bought coconut cream as a substitute to any recipe that calls for whipping/heavy cream. The ones from pasar are too liquid, doesn’t whip up. I do have to give generous amounts of garlic (or flavouring in case it’s a sweet dish) to get rid of the coconut taste/smell. But apart from that it works as good as heavy cream at half the price.
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.
