Cluster beans are good for diabetics as they have the highest fibre content among all vegetables which in turn prevents a rapid rise in blood sugar levels after a meal. Red pumpkin has been added to thicken the gravy and it also imparts a natural sweetness to this dish, which is delectable. You could have never tried this combination of vegetable, but do not hesitate to do so now as this will definitely please your palate.
