Paneer Bhurji and Chapati: A Protein-Packed Meal Made Glucose-Friendly!

Paneer bhurji, featuring paneer, juicy tomatoes, and bright coriander, is a protein powerhouse. It’s rich in iron, calcium, and magnesium yet low in calories, which keeps your body functioning at its best.
The only catch? It’s paired with chapati made with whole wheat or maida, which gets digested into the bloodstream quickly, messing with your glucose metabolism.

Optimise chapati and paneer bhurji into a glucose-healthy meal

• Wheat flour quickly releases sugar into the bloodstream, causing elevated blood glucose concentrations. To keep the GI score low, consider swapping it for almond flour or coconut flour.
• Consume at least 100 gms of cooked paneer for the best results.
• Consider swapping chapatis with low-carb alternatives like non-starchy vegetables to satisfy your appetite.
• Minimise the glucose spike by following the food flow: fibre, protein, fat, and complex carbs.

Protein-rich paneer bhurji takes time to absorb so that it won’t cause a sugar spike. To maintain that, you’ll need to use substitutes for rotis — especially ones made with wheat flour or refined flour like maida. They can cause a rise in blood sugar levels, although to what extent will depend on their size.
