So, what is mung bean?

Mung beans, also known as green gram, are small, round, olive-green colored legumes that are native to India and widely cultivated in many parts of Asia. They are a good source of plant-based protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making them an excellent ingredient for vegetarian and vegan diets. Mung beans have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor with a tender yet chewy texture, which makes them versatile in a variety of dishes, from savory soups and stews to sweet desserts. They are easy to prepare and can be boiled, sprouted, mashed, or ground into flour to make a range of delicious and nutritious meals.
