Papdi Chaat is a popular street food in South Asia, known for its savoury and tangy flavours. However, recent studies have suggested a potential link between consuming Papdi Chaat and glucose metabolism. While some research has shown that the ingredients in Papdi Chaat may positively affect blood sugar control, other studies have raised concerns about its potential negative impact on glucose metabolism.

Optimising Papdi Chaat for better glucose Metabolism
• Consider using puris made of almond flour instead of regular flour.
• You may eat Papdi Chaat after a meal that is high in protein and fibre and low in carbs to minimise glucose fluctuations.
• Try practising portion control. Limit the serving size of Papdi Chaat to prevent glucose spikes.
• Avoid adding sugar to the curd or chutneys to minimise sugar content.
• Instead of deep-frying the puris, try baking or air-frying them to make them healthier.

Papdi Chaat is a mixed-carbohydrate food containing fried puri, potatoes, sweetened curd, and chutneys. The mixed carbs in this dish can cause multiple glucose spikes. If optimised, the fibre and protein in this dish may slow glucose absorption and improve insulin sensitivity. It can potentially lead to better glucose metabolism over time.
