If you’re a fan of Indian cuisine, you’re probably familiar with the classic pairing of kadhi and roti. However, this meal may not be your best choice if you’re trying to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Roti, made with whole wheat flour, can cause blood sugar spikes due to its glucose-rich profile. But don’t worry; with a few simple tweaks, you can still enjoy this delicious meal without sacrificing your health goals.

Optimising the health benefits of kadhi-roti
• Consider swapping whole wheat flour for almond flour, coconut flour or any low-carb flour
• Portion control: Try sticking to small portions of one or two rotis. This will help you manage your carb intake.
• Another option is to add a fibre-rich salad to your meal to replace some of your rotis.
• You may add 1 tsp ghee to your kadhi for a healthier fat source and to lower the meal’s glycemic index

Kadhi-roti has a host of health benefits. The low glycemic index of kadhi doesn’t cause spikes in blood sugar levels. Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is crucial for preventing and managing diabetes, pre-diabetes and other metabolic disorders. By making these simple changes to your kadhi-roti meal, you can enjoy a delicious and satisfying meal while keeping your blood sugar in check.
