Revamp Your Bhajia Recipe for a Healthier Snack

Bhajias are a popular snack many enjoy, especially in South Asian cuisine. However, they are typically made with simple carbohydrates and deep-fried in oil, which can make them a less healthy option for those looking to maintain their blood sugar levels and reduce their overall calorie intake.

Transforming Bhajias into a healthier and diabetic-friendly snack
• Try to replace traditional flour with almond or coconut flour for a low-carb option.
• You may air fry the bhajias instead of deep-frying to reduce the oil used.
• Try to use non-stick cookware or parchment paper to reduce the oil needed when frying.
• Consider experimenting with different spices and herbs for flavour without adding extra salt or sugar.

Simple carbs in traditional bhajia batter can cause a spike in blood sugar levels, leading to hyperglycemia, especially for those with pre-diabetes or diabetes. Deep-frying adds extra calories and fat, contributing to weight gain and other health problems. By making these simple substitutions, you can still enjoy the taste of bhajias without sacrificing your health and fitness goals.
