Idlis without the guilt

 

The Idli is a traditional south Indian tiffin delicacy that is universally popular. Despite being steamed, diabetics often restrict their consumption of idli because of its carbohydrate content. However this easy idli recipe cuts down drastically on the carbs and increases the protein content . So now diabetics can enjoy  a guilt free breakfast and a great any time nibble.

Sadly, diabetes is on the rise world wide,  particularly in India.

Diet and exercise are both essential to control this lifestyle disease. Excessive carbohydrates intake  contribute to increased sugar levels.  Many people, therefore, give up traditional foods or at least have them in moderation. But there is no need to drastically change one’s diet. A person with diabetes can easily have traditional foods that are modified.
