Satisfy Your Hunger and Control Glucose: Lauki Sabzi and Roti Pairing

Lauki sabzi (bottle gourd curry) and roti (Indian bread made from wheat flour) are both common components of a traditional Indian meal. However, both these foods can have an impact on blood sugar levels because of their glycemic indexes, portion sizes and formation methods.

Optimising Lauki Sabzi and Roti for Stable Blood Sugar
• Choose whole grain flour instead of refined flour for reducing the glycemic index of roti.
• Combine it with high-fibre and protein-rich foods like vegetables, lentils, or beans.
• Add 100 gm of cooked protein instead of lauki.
• Change flour and opt for almond or coconut flour.
• Add 1 tsp of ghee that contains fat to optimize spikes.

Lauki sabzi is generally considered a low glycemic index food, meaning that it can help regulate blood sugar levels by slowing down the rate at which glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream. However, hyperglycemia or high blood sugar levels may occur due to lauki if it is cooked with a lot of oil, ghee, or sugar, or consumed in large amounts in the form of lauki juice. Roti, on the other hand, is made from wheat flour, which is a carbohydrate-rich food. When consumed, the body breaks down the carbohydrates into glucose, which enters the bloodstream and raises blood sugar levels. However, it is important to consider portion sizes and other factors that can affect blood sugar.
