Chole and plain paratha is a classic combination enjoyed by many. The high glycemic load of chole combined with the refined wheat flour of paratha can cause a spike in blood sugar levels, leading to hyperglycemia.

Optimise Your Chole & Plain Paratha Meal
• Pair it with salad to make this dish fibre rich.
• Consider adding some paneer to the Chole and Plain Paratha meal. This can add a protein source, helping to balance out blood sugar.
• Instead of wheat flour or maida, you can make the roti with alternative low-carb flour such as almond or lupin flour.
• Try to keep the portion size small and avoid overeating.
• Eating slowly and chewing thoroughly can help slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and prevent a sudden blood sugar spike.

Chole is made from chickpeas which are a good source of nutrients but contain more carbs than protein. Similarly, Plain Paratha is made from wheat flour or maida, which can also cause a spike in blood sugar levels due to its high glycemic load. However, with some simple tweaks, you can enjoy this dish without causing a spike in blood sugar levels.
