Chole Bhature: The Delicious Enemy of Your Glucose Metabolism

Written by Team Ultrahuman

If you’re a fan of Indian cuisine, you’re likely familiar with the classic dish Chole Bhature. While it’s undoubtedly delicious, it can also be a carb overload, especially for those with prediabetes or diabetes. Chole has more carbs than protein, and Bhature is made with either wheat flour or maida, both of which can cause a significant glycemic load.

Transform this Crowd Favourite without compromising on taste
• Try pairing the chole with a salad rich in fibre. This will help slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and prevent a sudden spike in blood sugar levels.
• If you’re in the mood for some bread, try a small portion of Chole with a paratha stuffed with paneer. This combination provides a balanced ratio of carbs, protein, and fat.
• If you can’t resist the bhature, try making it with alternative low-carb flour such as almond or lupin flour.

Hyperglycemia due to the glycemic load is a significant concern for people with diabetes or prediabetes. Foods with a high glycemic index can cause a sudden spike in blood sugar levels, leading to insulin resistance and other health issues. By making some simple adjustments to classic dishes like Chole Bhature, you can enjoy your favourite foods without compromising your health.
