You can have your cake and eat it too, the key lies in moderation when you are diabetic. A series of sugar-free desserts have been specially created by restaurant chefs in five different Indian cities for the month-long Diabetic Food Trail festival held every year in November.
Here’s the first in our series of Diabetic Desserts.
3 cups low-fat milk, 99.7 percent fat-free
3/4 cup grated apples (with skin)
1/4 tsp. cardamom (elaichi) powder
a pinch of nutmeg (jaiphal) powder
1 teaspoon sugar substitute
1. Bring the milk to boil in a deep non-stick pan and simmer it for 10 to 12 minutes, while stirring in-between and scraping the sides of the pan.
2. Add the grated apple, mix well and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring in-between and scraping the sides of the pan.
3. Add the cardamom powder and nutmeg powder mix well and keep aside to cool.
4. Once the rabadi has been cooled, add the sugar substitute, mix well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
5. Serve chilled.
