Nutritional Comments: Hara-Bhara Paratha tries to bring together all the low GI, diabetic friendly vegetables to make it a healthy meal, which can be eaten anytime of the day. Bottle gourd has proven to have multiple benefits of improving digestion, stomach ulcers, blood pressure and glucose control. Addition of fenugreek makes it just better by incorporating antioxidants and soluble fibres to improve the glucose tolerance and other metabolic symptoms associated with diabetes. Do limit the serving of buckwheat to the quantity mentioned above or half a cup at the most.
