Dosa Hacks: Making Your Favourite South Indian Dish Blood Sugar-Friendly

Dosa is a delicious South Indian dish that is a favourite for many. But did you know that it’s primarily made of rice, a carbohydrate source? Rice has a high glycemic index, which means it causes a spike in glucose levels after consumption. However, there are ways to optimise your dosa and make it healthier.

Keeping plain dosa while stabilising glucose level
• Pair the carbs with fibre, protein and fat to slow down the release of glucose and improve the response
• Try to reduce the portion of carbohydrates
• Try to replace simple carbs with complex carbs
• Try to implement the food flow to your meals – fibre> protein > complex carbs

Fibre, protein and fat take longer to digest than carbohydrates. So when they are paired with dosa, it slows down the rate of glucose absorption. This helps prevent spikes in blood sugar levels and supports better blood sugar control, which is particularly important for anyone looking to improve their overall health.
