This recipe proves that diabetics can have most of their favourite foods, provided they make some smart twists in the cooking method and ingredients.

Tortillas, which are like the pillars of Mexican cooking, are usually made with maize flour and maida, both of which are no-no for diabetics.

Maize flour, especially, can cause blood sugar levels to dart up instantly! Here, we have made delicious Whole Wheat Burritos by using more of wheat flour and less of maize flour.

While refried beans and salsa are also fibre-rich, we have enhanced the recipe further by using nutritious and fibrous veggies like spring onions and cabbage to add volume without relying totally on refried beans.
