Curry cuisine requires carb counting

The Complete Indian Regonal CookbookMridula Baljekar’s latest book, The Complete Indian Regional Cookbook, is a compilation of 300 recipes exploring well-known as well as unknown territories of India. Stunning photographs feature throughout the book of both the food and the regions, from the mountainous north east of India to the palm-fringed coastal areas of India where centuries old influences from Arabia, China, Portugal and Britain shaped the cuisine.

As with any cuisine, anyone with diabetes should check the fat and carb content of each recipe before calculating your insulin dose. Try to accompany with brown rice — white rice has a very high glycaemic index.

Recipes in this book include fish with tomato and lime (Tenga) from Assam, parsnip patties from central India, kathi rolls from east India and melt-in-the mouth kebabs from Hyderabad in the south.
