13 bean soup mix chaat recipe - 13 bean soup mix chundal- healthy snack recipes

       My regular readers must have already guessed that this (that is the 13 beans soup mix) was the next thing I got from my mustafa shopping few days back. As I mentioned before, that we have been trying to reduce carbs from our diet especially during dinners. So we have been using quinoa, millet varieties,oats etc regularly. So along with this , I also make a salad everyday, sometimes with avacados, other vegetables or sometimes even fruit salads. I make salad with chick peas or black eyed beans or sometimes it is just  a cup of plain dal. So for dinner one night I made a sundal or a salad with the 13 bean soup mix. It was delicious and I realised the mealtimes becomes more fun when we try using newer and healthier ingredients ( with lower calories too).It doesn't feel like you have been deprived of your full fledged meal because its quite delicious and filling too!!
