Paneer butter masala is one of the signature dishes in Indian cuisine. It is best served with a flatbread like tandoori roti or naan. Tandoori roti is usually made with refined wheat flour, which is rich in simple carbs and increases blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia).

Enjoy tandoori roti and paneer butter masala, keeping blood glucose levels in check
• Consider making tandoori roti with whole wheat flour with a low glycemic index (GI). You may also choose low-carb flours like coconut or almond flour, which do not cause blood sugar spikes.
• Try pairing paneer with non-starchy vegetables. This adds dietary fibre to the meal and balances blood glucose surge.
• Make sure that your meal contains the highest portion of fibre, followed by protein and the lowest proportion of complex carbs and fats.

Tandoori roti and paneer butter masala combo can be made healthier without affecting your taste. It is important to consume it in moderation and combine it with other nutrient-dense foods that can inhibit blood glucose spikes, such as non-starchy vegetables, healthy fats and lean protein. This reduces the impact on glucose metabolism.
