It is a high protein dal recipe which is very good for digestion.
Uttarakhand is my favourite summertime holiday spot, and we never miss it. Apart from being a popular tourist destination it similarly shares a popular vegan cuisine. A high protein vegan recipe is a must make for every family which is simply cooked and it helps in digestion especially when you are travelling. Bhaddu is actually an alloy pot they use to soak and cook the lentils for long hours. Hence the name and the local addition of selective ingredients and exploring on making tasty protein meal is highly praised by all.
