Can Diabetics, Heart patients and over weight individuals have crispy dosa?

Dosa is a moderate Glycemic Index recipe. Since, dosa has a high amount of rice which is rich in simple carbohydrates and it is fermented that is - it is pre digested, it does not prove to be a healthy option for diabetics, heart patients and weight watchers.

Diabetics can replace the rice with oats or ragi which will increase the fiber content and make recipes like Healthy Oats Dosa and Nachni Dosa

Can healthy individuals have crispy dosa?

Yes, dosa works for healthy individuals. Dosa is a fermented food which is easy to digest. Fermentation of foods increases the bioavailability of nutrients which helps the body to assimilate more nutrition. The microorganisms break down the complex protein, carbohydrates and fat efficiently thereby helping to assimilate more nutrients from the food. BUT, you need to balance your dosa meal later in the day with some fibre rich foods since dosa does not have much fibre. So always keep that in mind. So you can have a Spinach and Paneer paratha recipe

Ghee, butter or oil, which to use in making paper dosa?

Ghee and butter in moderate quantities is healthier option to make dosa. If you want to use oil, use olive oil, canola oil or peanut oil which are rich sources of MUFA which decreases the risk of heart disease as they lower the low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels (Bad cholesterol)  in the body.

What to have your paper dosa with?

Have this with nutritious green chutney recipe which has ZERO sugar used in it made with mint leaves, onions and coriander. Or you can have this healthy coocnut chutney made from coconut and coriander.  Don't add potatoes to your dosa as it will increase the carbohydrate content.
