Pulses are one of the sources of protein for the diet, other than meat. For vegetarians pulses are a vital part of the diet. For non vegetarians, pulses offer an alternative source of protein without the fat but with a lot of fiber. Also beans and lentils are rich in complex carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.
PROTEIN RICH FOOD SOURCE
'Pulses' are the edible seeds of legumes, such as lentils, beans, peas and chickpeas. Each of these pulse crops come in a wide range of colours and sizes. The name pulse is derived from the Latin puls meaning thick soup or potage.
