This bacteria, which turns milk into curd, is very good for health and is probiotic in nature. It is easy to digest and helps in managing the glucose curve. However, Pulav, a popular Indian dish, is made with high GI (82) white rice, which can spike blood sugar levels and lead to health issues like weight gain.

Optimise to Make Pulav & Raita Healthier
• You can add alternative rice options like cauli rice or black rice.
• Try keeping the pulav portion under 50 g.
• Try adding Ghee or other fat options to stabilise the blood sugar spike
• You can add chicken, fish, or paneer to pulav.

Research has suggested that ghee may have hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects, which means it can help to lower blood sugar levels. Ghee is also a source of healthy fats, which can help to slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and prevent blood sugar spikes. Additionally, ghee has a low glycemic index, which means it is less likely to cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels compared to high glycemic index foods.
