Fry up some fun without the glucose spike: Medu vada without consequences

The main ingredient of medu vada is urad dal or split black gram, a good carbohydrate source. Urad dal has a low glycemic index (GI) and a high-fibre content. It is high in protein, but the carb content is much higher. This causes poor glucose response.

Medu vada makeover for blood sugar management
• Drinking apple cider vinegar about 5-10 minutes before eating can help to curb blood sugar spikes.
• Reducing the number of vadas will help to limit the carbs you consume.
• Scheduling your meals as fibre, protein, and complex carbohydrates can reduce blood sugar spikes by 75%.
• Eating vegetables and protein-rich foods can help to add fibre and protein. This will help to balance the effect of the carbs in the vada.
• Try making a healthier version by baking instead of deep-frying

Although medu vada is made from pulses which are a good source of protein, it is prepared by deep frying in oil. This makes it an unhealthy snack for frequent eating. It is recommended to eat it in moderation, to avoid weight gain, increase in cholesterol levels and other health complications.
