The base composition of curry puffs is maida or all-purpose flour mixed or rolled in butter. Refined carbohydrates are quickly broken down into glucose and absorbed into the bloodstream, causing a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. This can be problematic for people looking to maintain stable blood sugar levels. Curry puffs can also be filled with different mixtures of curried potatoes, meat, and sometimes eggs or sardines. After that, they are fried in hot oil to get that fluffy puff. Since they are fried, curry puffs have a high calorific value. All this contributes to a spike in blood sugar.

Your curry puff can be healthy, so relax and try these tips
• Try to change refined flour with almond or rice flour, coconut flour etc.
• Increasing protein by adding eggs, sardines and nuts like peanuts can help balance the spikes in blood sugar levels.
• Adding fresh cheese, which is a healthy source of fat, can make puffs healthier.
• You can also check the portion size. If two are resulting in hyperglycemia, eat one.

Curry puffs can result in higher spikes in blood sugar levels. The composition of the curry puffs is such that the overall curry puff gets a GI score of 80-90. Thus, they can result in gaining weight and blood glucose spikes; therefore, consider portions and components while eating curry puffs.
