According to Healthline Although anyone can reap the nutritional benefits of eating millet, it’s been shown to be especially beneficial for diabetes management, making it one of the better whole grains for managing blood sugar. Millet is a good choice for diabetes due to its high fiber content. Fiber helps slow digestion. As a result, sugar enters the bloodstream slowly, lessening the risk of a blood sugar spike.

Potatoes are a versatile and delicious vegetable that can be enjoyed by everyone, including people with diabetes. However, because of their high carb content, you should limit portion sizes, always eat the skin, and choose low GI varieties, such as Carisma and Nicola. They’re rich in potassium and B vitamins, and the skin is a great source of fiber. However, if you have diabetes, you may have heard that you should limit or avoid potatoes. The truth is, people with diabetes can eat potatoes in many forms, but it’s important to understand the effect they have on blood sugar levels and the portion size that’s appropriate.

But as I mentioned above you can always use sweet potatoes instead of potatoes. So these cutlets are gluten free, vegan and diabetic friendly. You have to rinse and soak the soybean overnight like chickpeas rajma etc. Next day pressure cook with 1&1/4 cup water. After one whistle reduce the heat and cook for 20-25 minutes or till soybean becomes soft and easy to mash. Don’t discard the remaining nutritious water of boiled soybean if any. Either cook till water absorbed completely or use the water in soup or other dishes.

You can cook kodo millet as you cook rice. Soak in water for 15-20 minutes drain and cook with double amount of water. Use 1 cup water for 1/2 cup kodo millet. You can also use pressure cooker to boil the kodo millet. Pressure cook for 2 whistle. For open pot,when water starts to rolling boil reduce the heat, cover the vessel and cook on simmer for 10-15 minutes or till moisture evaporate and millet becomes soft.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
