This meal is completely suitable for diabetics as it has all those ingredients that are great to be consumed by them to regulate their blood sugar levels. 

Ragi is rich in calcium, helps in weight loss, has a high fiber content, battles anemia, reduces blood cholesterol and also regulates blood sugar levels. Because of its low glycemic index, it helps reduce food cravings and slows down absorption of starch, thus helps in regulating the blood sugar for diabetic.

Horsegram is also rich in iron and calcium among other nutrients. It is a poor man's food as it provides a lot of energy for a small portion consumed.  If you do not consume ragi in the form of ragi mudde, you can replace it with Ragi Wheat Phulka Recipe- Diabetic Friendly Ragi Roti or Steamed Rice instead. 

Eating all of these elements in the right quantities is the key. This meal is packed with nutrients, yet eating the right amount of food is equally important.  To eat slowly and mindfully with no distraction and concentrating on your plate should be the only task. ;
