Karela Tikkis – A Nourishing Snack for Diabetes.   Karela, also called as Bitter gourd, is not a highly acceptable vegetable by many. But this Karela Tikki will probably change your opinion about this veggie. Turn to these non-fried tikkis if you do not like a subzi out of karela. While Karela Juice is often suggested for diabetics to keep blood sugar levels under check, this is a variation to opt for when you want to try something new and yet flavourful. The additional veggies – carrot and peas provide some amount of fiber, which too helps in controlling blood sugar levels. Cornflour and potatoes which have a high glycemic index and thus are not considered healthy for diabetics have been avoided completely. Instead high fiber oats and protein rich low fat paneer have been used. Both these nutrients further help to manage diabetes. Finally the tikkis have been cooked with Peanut oil, which has a good amount of MUFA (mono unsaturated fatty acids) to reduce inflammation in the body and thus prevent the onset of other chronic diseases like heart disease. Serve them green chutney and you are in for a nourishing snack option. Remember not to go overboard, 2 to 3 tikkis should suffice at snack time.
