Diabetic Puranpoli Recipe
Can you imagine festivals or weddings without Puranpoli? This classic sweet is a favourite across the country, called by different names and made with minor variations. If a month goes by without any special occasions, then people even go ahead and make it as a no-reason Sunday treat! For those of you who are so fond of this traditional delicacy, here is a diabetic-friendly version made with sugar substitute and minimal ghee. Chana dal, with its low glycemic index, is always a good food for diabetics to have, as is fibre-laden whole wheat flour. All in all, this is a real treat for your mind and body. The wastage that is there when the sides are cut of the circle can be all put together and used later to make rotis.
