The capsicums and paneer contribute a refreshing medley of colours and thereby a visual appeal to this healthy and tasty satay.

This is a slightly-heavy snack that goes well with a hot and sweet dip. The dip is quite spicy, but if you want it spicier you can add more red chilli flakes!

Peanuts are a forbidden food for diabetics due to their high calorie content; therefore I have used it very sparsely. Lemon grass and coconut milk are typical Thai flavour enhancers.

But coconut milk is also very high in calories, so I have added very little of it just to bring out the Thai flavour. Since this snack is a wee bit high in calories, have it only once in a while.

You can also try other Thai diabetic friendly recipes like Thai Stir Fried Noodles with Tofu or Thai Green Kodri .
