    Can anyone tell me if the South Indian dish Ravai uppuma with plenty of vegetables is good for a diabetic? I am a vegetarian and a senior. I have to watch my Glycemic index and I am looking for vegetarian Indian recipes that have very low Glycemic levels. I also have other health problems. I would appreciate answers from dieticians, nutrionists or others who know about Indian vegetarian dishes. I have to cut down on salt and deep fried foods. It would be nice if nutrionists from and doctors from India ( who know about our food) give us the good foods we can eat that still has the Indian flavor without adding calories. Thanks in advance.
