GSB is always a lover of whole grains. They have a definite idea of, on what day they have to cook a particular grain. For example Bengal gram on Friday, Horse gram and other black coloured grains on Saturday etc. This vision on grains which has been carried forward from our ancestors is simply because of its health benefits. There are many houses which follow this and knowingly or unknowingly they embrace its health benefits. Here is a super tasty dish of a whole grain “Kali tori”.
