    • Let it cool; cut into square shapes. Shallow fry till golden brown.
    • Make 10 – 12 pieces.

    Health Benefits

    • Lentils contain a high amount of proteins, dietary fiber, folic acid, magnesium, phosphorus, and other minerals. The fat content of lentils is negligible. Lentils are one of the best vegetarian sources of iron.
    • Iron is particularly important for adolescents and pregnant and lactating women, whose requirements for it are increased. There is a loss of iron during the monthly menstruation cycle, and lentils can help maintain iron levels in the body.
    • The soluble fiber helps in lowering bad cholesterol. The insoluble fiber helps in preventing constipation and disorders like diverticulitis and irritable bowel syndrome. It helps avoid wide swings in blood sugar levels throughout the day.
    • Consume lentils and pulses, which are packed with proteins as well as various nutrients and are low in fat and calories. It is advisable to restrict red meat, which is although rich in protein but has solid calories and bad fat, which are the cause of numerous diseases.
