Chapati, Shahi Paneer—Savour the Meal & Control the Glucose

Chapati is a popular Indian bread because it is easy to digest. It is a medium-high GI (glycaemic index) food when it is made with whole wheat or with a little maida. The simple carbs in such flour are digested quickly. Though Paneer is a low-GI food, the combination of Chapati and Shahi Paneer can lead to hyperglycaemia.

To make it a wholesome meal, you have many options
• You can use low-carb flour like coconut or almond flour to make chapati.
• You could opt for low-fat or fibre-enriched paneer. 100 gm of cooked paneer has adequate protein and fat but very little fibre.
• You could replace the roti and opt for a salad. Adding non-starchy vegetables like cucumber, carrots, cabbage or spinach to your salad can be a source of carbs.

Chapati made with germinated wheat flour and multi-whole grain flour contains more antioxidants, protein, dietary fibre, and minerals. Shahi paneer provides a nice balance of fats, complex carbohydrates and proteins. Optimising this wholesome meal will prevent glucose levels from spiking.
