Who hasn’t had a nice greasy kebab after a long night out? One of the best bits of it is that tangy spicy chilli sauce that comes in the big squeezy bottle!
Ready-made kebab shop keto chilli sauce
Most chilli sauces contain carb-heavy ingredients such as sugar. However, there are a few that are OK on keto, so long as you limit your intake and don’t go over your daily carb allowance (typically <20g per day).
All the ones listed below contain less than 15g of carbs per 100g. As it’s chilli sauce, you probably wouldn’t want more than a 20-30g serving!
Sourcing low carb ingredients
Most of the ingredients are naturally low carb, the only one we really need to be careful about is the mint sauce. Most are full of sugar at around 25g per 100g. Admittedly, we are only using 1 tsp (~10g), so it won’t really impact the carb count but it’s always good to pick up the best low carb one!
Always check the nutrition label on the mint sauce, as the carb count vary drastically amongst brands! Try and aim for one after 20g per 100ml.
Note – I tend to find that own-store branded mint sauce is lower in sugar than brands like Colman’s. Bartons Mint Sauce is a great product if you have an Asda nearby!
White Wine Vinegar
Vinegar is naturally low in carbs, though the white wine variety does contain traces at around 1g per 100ml. Almost all good supermarkets stock the Aspall brand, it’s low in carbs (0.9g per 100ml) and best of all cheap!
- Classic white wine vinegar
- For dressings, sauces and marinades
- Crisp flavour and a deliciously refreshing fruit aroma
- Bright acidity is perfect for adding piquancy to a range of dishes, sauces and marinades
- Suitable for coeliac, vegetarians and vegans
Net carbs: 0.9g per 100ml
In order to add a burst of flavour, we need to use some tomato puree. Most contain around 10-15g of carbs per 100g. However, in this recipe, we’re only going to be using 1tbsp (~15g), so it won’t break the carb bank!

- 🍅 Double concentrated
- 🍅 1 of 5 a day.
- 🍅 good for pasta pizza and cooking, Can use for thickening the sauce.

Net carbs: 14.9g per 100g
Note – most tomato puree in UK supermarkets are fine, just aim for less than 15g per 100g. Big brands like Napolina can be a bit high (15.6g), so be wary!
Tinned Chopped Tomatoes
Every keto household should have a large supply of tinned chopped tomatoes. They’re one of the most versatile cooking ingredients and can usually be bought in bulk!
When shopping for them, aim for ones that are under 4g of carbs per 100g. Some brands add sugar to sweeten them and that impacts the carb count greatly! You want ones that are just 100% pure tomatoes and nothing else.
Personally, I buy KTC branded tinned tomatoes as they are cheap and readily available in most UK supermarkets, as well as online.

Net carbs: 3.0g per 100g
Note – if you have an Iceland Food Warehouse nearby, then you can buy them in a tray of 24.
Getting the right sauce consistency
Depending on your preference, you might like your sauce chunky and thick or thin and light. Luckily, this recipe can easily be altered for both types.
Thick & Chunky – drain the chopped tomatoes before blending and only blitz the ingredients a tiny bit at a time until your desired thickness is achieved. You can always add back some of the drained liquid to thin it if needed.
Thin & Light – keep all the juices from the tomatoes and blitz on high for longer until the sauce is thin. You can even add water if it is still too thick.
