Yum
Hi friends, Today I came with very simple but healthy Rice... The usual Sunday was came and I have to prepare lunch for myself... N that day I was too lazy to do anything, and my eyes clicked the horse gram powder, so no delay I prepared this simple variety rice... Its my own creation...


Little about Horse Gram
Horse gram is one of the lesser known beans. The whole seeds of horse gram are generally utilized as cattle feed. However, it is consumed as a whole seed, as sprouts, or as whole meal in our India, popular especially in Southern Indian States.

We can make many varieties in the magic bean... like chutney/Dip, gravy, vada, podi n more... My mom make horse gram powder. She prepared this after dry roasted the bean. In that we used to add to Idli, Dosa, Chutney n all....

Benefits

  • It is known for its excellent diuretic and astringent.
  • Great benefit of horse gram is its use in extracting phlegm. When suffering with cough, phlegm is a hard thing to get rid of. Taking horse gram water can eliminate the phlegm and give relief.
  • It has phenols which helps in reducing weight.
  • Horse gram also helps in lowering cholesterol levels.
  • In women, it helps purify menstruation.
  • It is a good source of proteins.
