LEGUMES : MUNG BEAN

The best of all legumes, the mung bean is astringent and sweet, cool, and pungent in post-digestive effect. Being dry, light and purifying, it cures kapha and pitta. Its soup is ideal in illness and convalescence. Khechari or khichadi (split mung cooked with rice) is a purifying and nourishing dish that can be safely fed to almost anyone in almost any state of health; it purifies the body of toxins. Mung is also said to strengthen the eyes.
