Chapati and Rajma – Monitored Consumption to Control Sugar Spike

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Kidney beans (Rajma) are a great source of fibre and carbohydrates. Cooked beans, on the other hand, have a lower fibre content. Kidney beans paired with chapatis can trigger a sugar spike, as both are high in carb content. A balanced pairing can allow you to enjoy this vegetarian delight without worrying about your glucose levels. The tried-and-true formula of fibre intake followed by protein and then complex carbs is an ideal solution.

Nullify a sugar burst even after consuming your favourite Rajma with chapati
• You may include one or more sources of protein along with kidney beans. Tofu, yoghurt, or pulses can be great complementary dishes.
• You can also add cottage cheese or soya chunks to pack more protein into the meal.
• Consider limiting the intake of carb-rich chapatis.

Wheat chapatis can be detrimental to your sugar levels as they are rich in gluten. Adding 1 tsp of psyllium husk to the roti dough can reduce glucose absorption. Combining that with high-carb Rajma and two varieties of protein can give you a healthy meal.
