Tamarind Fish Curry with Broccoli Biryani

{{totalReview}}
Missing biryani while on a low carb or keto diet? Fret not! This modern, low carb take on Tamarind Fish Curry with Broccoli Biryani looks great on the plate and tastes delicious too with Indian-inspired flavors. Shredded or riced broccoli has a nice bite to it and holds its shape well in high heat, providing a soft crunchy contrasting texture to the flaky fish and smooth curry. Out of broccoli? You can easily substitute it with riced cauliflower as well.
