Sometimes I don’t cook regular food and for a change try new recipes for Dinner or for Weekend Lunch. I posted different Dosa recipes but not with only Green Moong dal . There are many recipes preparing Moong dal Dosa without rice. We are not comfortable eating just Dal Dosa . So I added rice . Eating Moongdal with Brown Basmati rice together will provide you a Low fat high fiber complete Protein. Protein Sources are divided into complete and Incomplete Proteins based on how many of the essential amino acids they provide. Amino acids are the building blocks of Protein and can be essential , Non essential and conditional , some cannot be made by your body . Our bodies need 20 total amino acids to build and repair muscles and tissues . Plant based food are called incomplete Protein and provide some of the essential amino acids . Beans Brown rice, lentils , nuts, tofu are lacking in one or more types. Rice contains low amount of amino acids that are found in high quantities in Beans. Together they form a complete Protein. Meat , eggs , dairy , poultry and sea food provide all 9 essential amino acids and are known as complete Protein. We need essential amino acids in our daily diet . If we don’t get essential amino acids in your body , protein breaks down resulting in muscle loss and problems that need repair. Source : Health Magazines .
