This dal is perfect for diabetes, elderly people and also for kids. the sprouts contain a significant amount of fiber,protein as well as vitamin k and riboflavin. Since sprouts are also high in dietary fiber and low in calorie they can contribute positively to any weight loss diet plan.

I always like to experiment healthy and light side dishes for roti. When I made this dal all of my friends and family enjoyed a lot with this dal.
