    Laks,

    Check this link for the sprouts.

    Eating Raw Beans: Soak and Sprout Your Way to a Protein-Rich Raw Diet

    It has more details on preparation, shelf life and nutrient contents in some sprouts. Yes, i normally use them in kootu varieties. I just add a handful at the end of cooking it. Its yumm.. that avoids it mushy. But i definitely do not add them in frys.

    Brown rice with 15 bean makes a wonderful adai. Do try, it definitely tastes better than the original adai..

    Yaay!! i did complete my 100 mile challenge by 24/1 itself..

    Shanvy,

    u should really consider writing a recipe book, it will be really beneficial to indians as there arent many books with indian dishes that are low carb..

    There are books that are americanized ..

    The recipe was probably already posted, but would you please give me either the link or tell me where I can find it?

    Editing to add - I am so proud of myself :) A co-worker just brought over chocolate chip cookies which I politely declined. I have NEVER been able to do that!! So I have saved myself of a couple of 10s or 100s of calories, possibly ;-)

    Shanvy mam, belated anniversary wishes....(i would tell my hubby that every celebration will be there upto 1 week. so i think i am not late... hehehe), normally i will remember all the days, first we met(pen parkkum padalam), engagement, the big things we bought etc... i like celebrations...so i need a chance to celebrate ...

    yesterday prepared brown rice upma... it was so yummy and for the night dinner kept the wheat upma in the cooker instead of kadai, used only 1/2 spoon of oil for each upma.
    Today tried beetroot-leaves curry for the first time...(thanks Mathi for the details )


    I saw so many knol-khol with leaves in the market yesterday. Can we cook the leaves? Any idea about that?
