Curd pulav is a rice-based dish. It can affect your glucose level, depending upon the ingredients added to it. The white carbs in pulav can cause hyperglycemia, a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. A high glycemic index score is 70 or higher. Unfortunately, pulav (rice) falls in this range. It can quickly spike blood sugar levels if not consumed in moderation.
