These sumptuous whole wheat wraps are perfect to have for brunch, or as a meal on the go. The use of fibre-rich ingredients like methi and moong make this an ideal food for diabetics. In general, most fibre-rich foods help the lower blood glucose levels, but methi is all the more efficient because it stimulates the production of insulin. Moong is a good source of antioxidants too, which is another plus point for a diabetic diet. Interestingly, the Methi and Moong Sprouts Wrap is also a good way to make use of leftover chapatis!
