The main problem with diabetic diet is that many regular meals are not an option due to its high carb and high glycemic index contents that leaves a person with bland and dull devoid of flavor meals.
Well, the good news are that many Indian dishes that are naturally very rich flavored could be made to adapt into diabetic diet with only minor modifications. They never turn out boring and naturally rich in green veggies such as spinach and cauliflower, whole-wheat and the omega-3 fatty acids that a body needs to lead a healthy lifestyle.
You just have to watch out for Basmati or any other rices and sweet curry sauces or make sure they are low in sugar if you prepare them by yourself. Also some people feel that minted yogurt goes well with just any Indian food, so that could be a nice sauce substitute.
