Aashirvaad Sugar Release Control Atta - Replicating Restaurant Style Pizzas in a Healthier WayFriday, May 05, 2017ruthdsouzap
A term diabetics often hear in relation to their diets is maintaining one with a low Glycemic Index or GI. This is a scale that ranks carbohydrates by how much it raises blood glucose levels in the body. A low GI diet leads to healthy metabolism and weight management both of which effectively helps to manage blood sugar. Anything that is ranked 55 or below is considered good and anything 70 and above is high. Protein or fibre rich foods which have a low GI have a steady and sustained release of sugar in the body. Using wheat flour therefore that has a low GI helps in managing diabetes.
Due to its unique "Natural Grain Mix"; the blend of Aashirvaad's whole wheat flour and pulse/legume flours ensures that this Atta is high in protein and fibre with a low GI of 53. I was skeptical about the rotis I make being as good in terms of taste, but I found that there was hardly any noticeable difference. Which made me adventurous enough to try making a pizza from it too.
Now while you are waiting for your dough to rise, preheat your oven at around 180 degrees centigrade. In your deep baking tray, place the roughly chopped tomatoes and spread themout. Throw in the cloves of garlic, sprinkle with salt, pepper and a generous drizzle of olive oil. Put this into your oven and roast for around half an hour. I have a fan option in my oven and used this as well. Once done, pull out your tray and roughly pulse together all the contents in a mixer. You will have your base margerita sauce ready to go.
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius and then pop in the pan for 15 minutes or till the cheese has melted. Once done, pull the pan out of the oven and sprinkle with dry pizza seasoning. Cut out slices and serve up!
