Loved all over India, kachoris are consumed for breakfast or as a snack. It’s a spicy, and deep fried food that existed in India even before samosas. Made from refined flour, kachoris are made with different kinds of fillings.
Be it Raj Kachori, Masala Kachori, Khasta Kachori, Sweet Kachori, or Pyaaz ka kachori, all these are deep fried foods that contain loads of carbohydrates and fat. With a high content of carbohydrates, and very little dietary fiber, they are not the healthiest options for your diabetic diet.
However, most Indians a soft corner for kachoris and they do tend to cheat their diabetes diet plan and indulge in kachoris. This shoots up the blood sugar levels and over a period of time, can lead to weight gain, higher cholesterol levels, and ultimately, a higher risk of heart disease.
If you wish to have a kachori once in a while,
- Try kachoris made of whole wheat rather than refined flour (maida). This is because maida has a very hig glycemic index than whole wheat
- Opt for baked kachoris instead of deep fried ones which pack in a lot of carbs and fat
- Have a veggie salad along with the kachori so that the fiber can reduce the conversion of the carbs into blood sugar
- Get regular exercise as per the advice of your diabetes doctor.
Following a diabetes diet plan reduces the risk of chronic high blood sugar levels and numerous health risks.
