Moong Dal Chilla is a popular and delicious breakfast option in India. Moong Dal is a rich source of carbohydrates, proteins and fibre. However, the fibre content is reduced when cooked, and mostly the carbs are left behind. Also, moong dal chilla carbs are complex carbs that take longer to digest. Pairing the moong dal chilla with more than vegetarian protein in a meal, like beans + yoghurt or pulses + tofu, is recommended.

• Try to pair moong dal chilla with fibres and protein-rich foods to slow down glucose absorption in the bloodstream.
• Consider choosing moong dal chilla made with whole moong dal, which contains more fibre.
