Whole Beans


Descriptions:

"Instead of spit beans, get whole beans, which add to the dietary fiber, " Naveen Tuteja suggests. "The whole chana should be 20-35 percent less expensive than chana dal."

Preparation:

1. To cook soak it for 8-10 hours. Boil in a pressure cooker with salt and raw peeled onions, water 1:4 ratio for 20-25 minutes. Add spices to suite your taste. You can eat it as a staple or add to salads, pasta, rice, porriage, oats, or any other breakfast cereal. If you have excess water, do not drain it, since you can use it as a soup stock.

2. Soak it for 8-10 hours, drain water, let it sprout in a sprout maker or a wet towel at about 27-30 degrees centigrade. Will sprout in 1-2 days. Steam or saute the sprouts with vegetables, add salt and spices to taste and serve with finely chopped onions and tomatoes.
