Chole is one of India’s most loved dishes. It is also a good source of carbohydrates. Its carb content is more than protein. Cooking reduces its fibrous value further. As a result, chole in gravy is primarily carbs, which causes a rise in blood sugar levels.

But it is possible to enjoy a sumptuous chole meal without the risk of a glucose spike.

Tips to make your chole meal healthier
• Protein is essential to balance out the carb content of chole. So, consider pairing your chole dish with more protein-rich food such as beans, yogurt, pulses or tofu.
• When chole is paired with rice, the glucose levels double up. So, try reducing the portion of rice in your chole meal. You can consume starch-free rice or brown rice to cut down on carbs.
• Include fibrous food items when eating chole to balance out the carb content of your meal.
• You can follow the food flow – fibre > protein > complex carbs for a balanced meal.

All vegetarian sources of food lack a couple of amino acids. The same is the case with chole. So, incorporate more nutritional elements in your meal when you are eating chole and make it healthier and yummier.
