    1. Hi Kowsalya,
      All melons are good for diabetes. Consult your doctor whether you can have this fruit. I regularly have this during the cantaloupe season. Melons have lots of fiber water and they are low in calories. For rasam you are going to use a very little quantity. So it should not be a problem.
