Healthy Indian Chutney Recipes for Diabetes

Chutneys are one of the best served accompaniment with most Indian snacks. Whether you think of steamed snacks like dhokla and idli or tava snacks like chila, pancakes and dosas. The best component of chutney is that there is a huge variety to choose from too. For every snack there is a different chutney that accompanies it.

One chutney that goes well with most Indian snacks is Green Chutney. Go a little more creative than plain coriander chutney. We have something different for you to explore. Mint and Onion Chutney and Coriander Green Garlic Chutney. Each of these green chutneys have onion and garlic respectively - ingredients which have been known to improve glucose control.

When you have made a nourishing Diabetic-friendly South Indian delicacies like Multiflour Idli or Quinoa Dosa, they give a try at Healthy Coconut Chutney. This recipe makes use of coriander as a flavourful enhancer. Remember that because this recipe makes use of coconut it is high in calories as compared to the other green chutneys. So restrict the quantity of this chutney to not more than 1 to 1½ tbsp.

Healthy Indian Raita Recipes for Diabetes

Raitas are everyone’s favorite accompaniment. Most Indian meals are incomplete with raitas. Curd and veggies is what it comprises of…. all of it is healthy. Again choice of curd – full fat or low fat can be decided by your dietitian. If you are a diabetic who has been advised to restrict the consumption of fat in your meals, go for its low-fat counterpart and try recipes like Cucumber Raita and Colocassia Leaf Raita. These vegetable based raitas will not add much calories nor fat, but definitely add fiber which will help to avoid that spike in blood sugar levels.

Healthy Indian Dips for Diabetes

Dips are often tagged as ‘unhealthy’ because of the use of loads of cream and cheese. But there are many dips which can be truly be made healthy and wholesome. The best way to do so is to make use of curd instead of fat-laden ingredients.

Prefer low fat curd if you have been advised to restrict the amount of fat consumed. We have created a few nourishing options which can be added to diabetic meals like Spinach and Paneer DipVeggie Curd Dip and Chunky Vegetable Spread. What you need to remember while serving these dips to avoid those fried chips and nachos. Make a healthy move towards Vegetable Crudités. These do not add any fat, but instead help towards meeting days fiber requirement for diabetes. Fiber helps to manage diabetes well, so opt for it.

Healthy Indian Pickle Recipes for Diabetes

Pickles are the heart of Indian cuisine. No Indian thali is complete without serving pickle. Spicy, lemony, sweet and sour are different flavoured pickles which people across India enjoy. However because salt, sugar and oil form the basis of most pickles, they appear in the avoid list for diabetics.

But who says that’s a dead end for them. We have created a few options which are oil-free and at the same time sugar-free too. Moreover these pickles make use of ingredients which help control diabetes. So what more can one ask for? Try options like Fresh Turmeric and Ginger Pickle. However, if you are a diabetic who has hypertension as well then you need to restrict the amount of salt used in this pickle. Do not panic. The lemon juice in good quantity will not make you compromise on the taste.

Another option is a water based pickle – Crunchy Vegetable Pickle. This has no oil but slightly extra salt along with a host of spices. Again diabetic hypertensives should not opt for this pickle.

They can try other low-salt pickle options like Cucumber Carrot Pickle which has a flavourful touch of authentic pickle masala – split mustard seeds. And if you are a person who loves spice, then there is another option in the basket for you – Green Chilli Pickle. This recipe makes use of only 1/8 tsp of salt for 1 cup of pickle and other masalas like cumin seeds, ajwain and soonth powder kick your taste buds.

 Remember in this pickle you need to avoid the use of jaggery completely. You can then reduce the amount of lemon juice also accordingly. 


It is highly recommended that these recipes be relished by diabetics only occasionally and in small quantities. It is best to consult your doctor or dietitian for individual dietary needs.
