Ratatouille is a famous vegetable delicacy from italy, made using zucchini, brinjal and tomatoes. It is usually served with rice or pasta. For a change, i have served it with diabetic-friendly kodri flavoured with mixed herbs. Use fresh herbs as they are flavourful and aromatic and ensure the true taste of kodri. Rice has a high glycaemic index and can raise the blood sugar levels quickly, which is why i have replaced it with fibre-rich kodri. If you do not find kodri easily, use dalia or buckwheat that are equally good. Rich in nutrients like calcium, iron and folic acid, this dish is a completely healthy meal indeed!
