Today being world diabetic day I wanted to post a diabetic friendly recipe and also a diabetic friendly lunch. Tindora was my choice as I have not published any recipe using it. They can be cooked in various ways like dhal, vegetable curry , Chutney etc. I used to make raita’s with them. They taste so fresh and go very well when mixed with onion’s.

Check out my diabetic friendly recipes and diabetic friendly lunch series in google collection and follow them for regular updates.
