What's the problem ?

Sugar  (castor sugar ): Sugar used in the recipe is also called white poison. It is a simple carbohydrate with zero nutritional value. On intake, sugar will cause inflammation of the body which will last for many hours. It will spike your blood sugar level and shut down the fat burning process. This also causes high blood sugar levels in your body. The development of prediabetes comes from uncontrolled eating sugar and refined food products for many years and the classic symptom is if you have excess belly fat. This leads to diabetes and further onwards to heart attack, high blood pressure, strokes, impotence and kidney damage. 

Refined Vegetable Oils : To some vegetable oil is only soyabean oil, while some promote it as a mix of oils like soyabean, canola, sunflower, corn and other omega-6 rich oils. These are often cheaper options than many oils, but they are highly processed oils. They are undoubtedly not to be reached out for, whether you are looking for salad dressings, sautéing or cooking.  The development of prediabetes comes from uncontrolled eating sugar and refined food products made from refined vegetable oil for many years and the classic symptom is if you have excess belly fat. This leads to diabetes and further onwards to heart attack, high blood pressure, strokes, impotence and kidney damage. 

Healthy Oils recommended to use in Indian

The healthiest oil for Indian cooking is coconut oil. Use cococnut oil instead of processed seed oils like soyabean oil, canola, sunflower oil, corn oil and other omega-6 rich oils should be used in very low amounts. Another good option is peanut oil. Peanut oil has the highest amount of MUFA (around 49%) amongst most Indian common cooking oils.

Pick olive oil which is loaded with MUFA. But its usage is restricted to salads, stir-fries, sabzis which can be cooked only on medium heat. For salads only use extra virgin olive oil. Avocado oil can be used in cooking, but it’s expensive. So what you can turn to for cooking is Coconut oil which is easily available in India.

No for diabetics, but maybe small amounts to others if you cook in coconut oil and reduce the amount by 50%. 

Can healthy individuals have Kela Methi Nu Shaak ?
