Kadhi Pakora #MakeIndiaDiabetesFree

Healthy cooking is very important priority for me throughout my cooking journey. Most of the time in my supermarket goes in selecting the right food after reading the nutrition information.

Diabetes  frequently leads people to take strict  diet , the food which has no sugar and as well as no oil.… The strict diet can be good but it limits our affection over food which we like the most.

So when Fortune Vivo announced the launch of India’s first oil for diabetes care I was super excited. This Fortune VIVO Oil contains y- oryzanol which improves insulin and decreases LDL level in  blood.  It has MUFAs which controls glucose absorption and cholesterol. And the content of PUFAs improves lipoprotein profile in the body.

Called as India's first diabetes care oil, this oil has acted like a blessing in disguise to my family.

This recipe has been cooked using this oil. The food is not only tasty but gives me a happiness that i am taking care of my family without impacting their taste buds.
