Rice is usually a no-no for diabetics because it causes a quick rise in blood sugar levels. To counter the effect of high glycemic index white rice, replace it with high fibre brown rice and toss in some fibre-rich vegetables along with diabetic-friendly ingredients like garlic and fenugreek to create a hearty rice delicacy which is best enjoyed in moderation.
