Protein content is very high and principal protein for Vegetarians.The Plump beans works best and do not overcook and after cooking cool them in a wide plate along with potatoes , so they won’t loose the texture when mixing with Spices.

Sesame seeds made it to the list of Foundation foods in the Save our Bones Program . They are powerhouse of minerals especially Calcium and is an alkaline food that supports Bones and general Health. When the seeds are crushed its nutrients are more easily digested . When left whole , the seeds do not break down well during digestion.
