Rice is the cereal that diabetics are advised to avoid. Here’s a simple and guilt free way to include rice in your diet…. All you have to do is add plenty of vegetables to the rice dish and use minimal oil. Adding vegetables not only enhances its vitamin value but also contributes plenty of fibre that prevents a rapid rise in blood sugar levels after a meal.
Choosing the right kind of rice is important too. Select an unprocessed variety of rice like kolam or brown rice instead of polished rice which has little or no fibre.

Cooking Time : 30 mins.
Preparation Time : 15 mins.

Serves 6.

Ingredients
1 cup uncooked rice, washed
¾ cup french beans, finely chopped
¾ cup carrots, finely chopped
¼ cup capsicum, finely chopped
2 sticks celery, finely chopped
2 spring onions (whites and greens separated), finely chopped
½ teaspoon soya sauce
1½ teaspoons oil
salt to taste
To serve
green chillies in vinegar
Method
1. Boil the rice in two cups of water. Each grain of the cooked rice should be separate.
2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add all the vegetables except the spring onion greens. Sprinkle two tablespoons of water and cook for 4 to 5 minutes
3. Add the rice, soya sauce, spring onion greens and salt. Mix well and sauté for two minutes.
4. Serve hot, with chillies in vinegar.
Tips
You can also use broken wheat (dalia) instead of rice to make this dish.
