    Now heres magic beans for all

    Beans or legumes or lentils,

    which are a staple in every Indian household,
    can easily be called magic beans.
    Lentils or the simple dal contains a unique

    combination of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals.

    Beans are a plant-based food and
    we use it almost everyday in our meal.
    Toor dal, urad dal, rajma, channa, navy beans, peas, lima beans,
    are some of the commonly used beans.

    Beans are low in fat, rich in protein,
    complex carbohydrates, vitamins, iron, zinc, copper and potassium
    and they are cholesterol free.

    They are great for diabetics as they provide complex
    carbohydrates and provide protein which helps to keep the
    blood sugar under control.
    Have it as usli (snack) mid-morning or with evening tea or coffee.

    Bean sprouts are great to have it as a salad,
    season it with lime and pepper instead of adding salt.
    Half cup of beans provide 4-8 grams of fibre,
    so if you are considering a healthy snack
    for you and your children,

    masala channa or roasted Bengal gram
    is a healthier option than chips or crisps.

    which is gaining popularity is nutritious and
    can be given to children as soymilk
    which is available in a variety of flavours.
    Soy flour can be added to your atta to make chappathis.
    Beans also give a feeling of fullness and if you want to
    shed those extra kilos try to add boiled channa or rajma to your salad.

    When ordering in a restaurant,
    go for channa masala or Gobi mutter or rajma or masala dal
    than high calorie dishes like
    paneer butter masala or malai kofta or Gobi Manchurian.

    Complex carbohydrates
    in beans-the oligosaccharides sometimes
    cause gas when they are digested.
    A simple way to avoid the
    feeling of bloating would be to discard the water you
    have soaked the beans in and cooking them with fresh water.

    The other option
    would be to pressure cook them with a piece of ginger.
    Recent studies have shown that including beans regularly
    in your diet may reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
    So if you're having plain old
    dhal-chawal for your lunch or dinner,
    don't fret you are just having
    a meal that is nutritious and plain magic!
