Chicken momos, or chicken dumplings, a popular street food in India, are made from refined wheat flour or maida. Maida is high in carbs and lacks protein and fibre. Moreover, it has a high glycaemic index (GI) score of 85, and all these factors can cause spikes in blood sugar.

Savouring chicken momos the healthy way
• Try reducing the number of momos you eat. Controlling portions can help avoid sugar spikes.
• If you make chicken momos at home, try making them healthier using low-GI flours such as whole wheat, oats or ragi flour.
• Consider adding more veggies and greens to your momos to make them healthier. Veggies can increase the fibre content in momos and help reduce blood sugar spikes.

Chicken momos made from whole wheat flour with plenty of added veggies, greens, and bean sprouts can be a healthy snack. It is low in carbs, fats, cholesterol, and calories, making it a good option for those with diabetes, heart patients and weight watchers. The fibre in vegetables helps with healthy digestion and reduces blood sugar spikes.
