Chana Dal Beans (Bengal Gram)

Chana Dal Beans
This bean looks just like split peas, but is quit different because it doesn't readily boil down so much. It's more closely related to garbanzo beans or chickpeas. This bean has a great taste and also a very low glycemic index, which is important for people with diabetes.These small unique Beans are of the Myles variety, a cross between the Indian and Ethiopian varieties. They have very good flavor and are somewhat chewier than most beans. Highly nutritious, being rich in protein, fat, calcium, iron and B vitamins.
