Ragi Dosa is a popular South Indian dish made from finger millet, known for its high nutritional value. However, it is important to note that Ragi Dosa contains carbohydrates and consuming too much can lead to hyperglycemia. This article will explore the relationship between ragi dosa and glucose metabolism and how to consume it in moderation to avoid adverse effects.

Optimise your Ragi Dosa
• Pair with a high-protein food like sambar, chutney, or paneer.
• Reduce the quantity of rice in the dosa batter to lower the overall carb intake.
• Prioritise fibre-rich vegetables and protein-rich sources like dal, fish or chicken as accompaniments.
• Balance the meal by following the food flow – fibre > protein > complex carbs.

Ragi dosa is a healthy food choice that can help your body use sugar better and keep your insulin levels under control. It’s an excellent calcium, protein and fibre source, making it better than the traditional carb-rich rice dosa. Eating ragi dosa often can help lower your chances of getting type 2 diabetes and other health problems. So, savour each bite and consume it slowly to avoid overeating and regulate glucose fluctuations.
