Chole or chickpea is a pulse that is famous for its taste as well as its nutritional value.
Many recipes are made of chole, and chole with rice is one of the most loved combinations. However, there are some health risks involved in consuming them together. There is a chance of hyperglycemia as the carbohydrate content of both chickpeas and white rice is high. Thus, consuming these together can lead to glycemic overload.

More nutritious ways to consume chole
• Chole can be consumed with Salad. Salad is a source of fibre. Thus, replacing rice with salad is a healthier option as the fibre will metabolize differently leading to a slower glucose response.
• Alternatively, you can add paneer to your rice and then consume it with chole.
• You can also switch to low-carb rice options, such as black rice and cauliflower rice.

Chickpea contains amylose, a resistant starch that digests slowly, and this helps control the blood sugar levels. Chickpeas (Chole) are also rich in iron, protein, phosphorus, etc. Chole also helps fight obesity as it is rich in fibre. Fibre can improve your heart health as it is rich in monosaturated fats.
