Nutritional Value in sweets – Kheer

Call it kheer, rice pudding or payasam, is not only a sweet, it is a perfect meal that’s easy to swallow and tastes delicious. Kheer is often made with spices like cardamom, cinnamon, and dry fruits like kaju, almonds, and pistachios. Some variations also include nutmeg, rose water, saffron, and kewra.

Kheer is consumed during festivals and during religious ceremonies. However, due to the high content of sugar, and ghee, it is a diabetic sweet that should be consumed in moderation.

Though it cannot be a part of your diabetes diet plan, it can be consumed during festivals and religious occasions. However, control the portions sizes and do not forget to measure your sugar levels during festival times. Keep a glucometer handy.
