well..... what could be more satisfying than to eat good healthy food and to maintain a perfectly fit body??!!!
I would like to brief about RED KIDNEY BEANS (or rajma as we call it), which is an excellent source of proteins, fibre, vitamins and minerals and what not!!!!
Rajma forms an integral part of north-indian cuisine. Its an wholesome source of proteins, fibre and some vitamins. Also its low in total fat and it has a low glycemic index(GI).
Kidney beans (boiled, red), 1 cup (177g)
Total Fat: 0.88g
Rajma is a treasure of nutrition, but, consumption of raw red kidney beans may lead to acute gastroenteritis, which may be severe.
Beans should be boiled for at least 10 minutes to degrade a toxic compound - the lectin phytohaemagglutinin - found in the beans, which can cause severe gastric upset. This compound is present in many varieties of beans, but is especially concentrated in red kidney beans. So, its always good to boil the beans in fresh water for atleast 1o minutes before cooking.
So make rajma an essential part in your diet chart and reap its benefits!!!!!!
