In Ayurveda, whole green mung beans provide a sweet and astringent taste, and a cooling energy to the body. All doshas are balanced by this bean, as it's easy and light to digest. Cook these beans with hing (available in shop) to reduce any possible gas. To make these beans even more digestible, soak them overnight in water before cooking the next day. They cook in about 45 minutes in a pot, and even quicker in an instant pot or pressure cooker. Mung beans can be used medicinally in cases of fever or eye problems.

Always a great selection of products that I struggle to find elsewhere.
This is the 2nd order i've received from you (maybe 3rd) - just wanted to thank you for packing everything so well, making sure the order is complete and overall making the whole online experience problem free. It's great to see a business running so smoothly and i couldn't be happier to be one of your customers!
