If you can get past the carbohydrates in the curry, eggs are great for managing blood glucose since they have a low glycemic index (GI) and a lot of protein. Research shows that a diet high in white rice increases the risk of hyperglycemia. Hence, practising portion control is preferable to balance the glycemic impact of this meal.

Manage blood sugar while enjoying white rice
• Try increasing the portion of protein in terms of egg curry. Also, include a bowl of salad rich in carbs and fibre to balance the hyperglycemic response.
• To lessen the impact on blood glucose, try serving your egg curry over cauliflower or black rice, which is a source of low GI.
• You should also reduce the portion size to 30-50 grams of rice with your egg curry.

The GI score of white rice is 80, which leads to quick absorption of glucose in the blood and increases the GI by 60%. Optimising the intake of white rice lowers the risk of developing hyperglycemia and cardiovascular diseases.
