You are in the middle of any season; you'll find plenty of foods around to add to your diabetes diet. Diabetes or high blood sugar can be efficiently managed through a thoughtfully curated diet. Nature's bounty is full of low Glycaemic foods, which can come in handy to tweak our diet to suit our condition. Indian produce is brimming with fresh guavas this time of the year.

Instead of just tossing them out, turn those semi-ripe guavas into a delectable Indian curry, which will surprise you with its overwhelming flavours.
