Today I want to share a easy and healthy snack made from Chana dal(Bengal gram),sweet potato and whole wheat bread.

Bengal gram is full of nutrition and beneficial for a Diabetic patient. The study of Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) found that Bengal gram showed consistent results in terms of reducing sugar spikes after a starchy meal. This legume is protein rich and the presence of digestion resistant carbohydrate reduces the rate of absorption of carbohydrate into our bloodstream.

Sweet potato is also recommended for diabetes according to American Diabetes Association (AMA).The high amount of fiber in it helps the person with insulin sensitivity.

Whole wheat breads are good for Diabetic patient. Whole wheat bread has a very low glycemic index and therefore lowers the sugar levels and the chance for diabetes.


  • 1-2 cups Bengal gram dhal (channa dhal )
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 4 whole  wheat bread
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp dried mango powder (amchoor)
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • ¼  tbsp ginger paste
  • salt to taste


  • Soak Bengal gram dhal overnight.
  • Boil Bengal gram dhal and sweet potatoes in pressure cooker and smash it..
