Lets check out the components of this Baked pooris :

  1. Whole Wheat Flour –  Whole-wheat flour is more in fiber Content . Whole wheat has Low-GI which helps the foods absorb more slowly to prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes, so you’re satisfied for longer after your meal.Whole-wheat flour contains several vitamins, including folate, riboflavin and vitamins B-1, B-3 and B-5.
  2. Fenugreek – Helps reduce cholesterol, aids digestion, Helps control blood sugar. Galactomannan, a natural soluble fibre present in fenugreek slows down the rate of sugar absorption into blood. Fenugreek also contains amino acid responsible for inducing the production of insulin.
  3. Turmeric – Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.Turmeric helps in repairing and regenerating Diabetic Liver Function.

This is a great way to fulfill your morning or evening cravings along with tea.Just 2 pooris with morning or evening tea is enough to boost of energy your body needs to kick start your day. I love eating these pooris with my Garam chai ki pyaali 🙂 You can have them with pickle or Coriander Mint Chutney
