We know that you love samosas. It is probably the most popular Indian snack, with a crispy outer layer filled with potatoes, cheese, or meat. But did you know this can cause a spike in your glucose levels? Deep-fried and potato-stuffed samosas are not nutritious, as they’re rich in starch, carbohydrates, and trans fats.

Make your Samosa Healthier Now!
• Avoid eating Samosa on an empty stomach, which helps in portion control.
• Try baking or air-frying your samosa rather than deep frying it in oil.
• Try using olive or sunflower oil instead of vegetable oil. Olive oil helps retain minerals and oxidants.
• Try different vegetables like peas, spinach, carrots, corn, etc., instead of carb-rich potatoes in the filling.
• Consider ragi, semolina or whole-grain flour instead of maida.

The impact of eating samosas on glucose levels depends on several factors, such as the individual’s health condition, portion size etc. The combination of high carbohydrates, refined flour, starchy filling and cooking methods can lead to spikes in the sugar levels in the body. Eating samosas in moderation and balancing them with other healthy foods is essential to avoid increasing glucose levels.
