The addition of cardamom gives this spiced Mung Beans Winter Casserole a delightful warming aroma. Because I love the taste so much, I use the seeds of 8 cardamom pods but it is as delicious with 6. The spices are very mild here so feel free to add chili flakes to suit your own taste.
Mung beans are a good source of protein as well as potassium, fibre, magnesium and Vitamin Bs. They are also reputed for their cleansing properties.
This casserole is quite hearty so you can eat it on its own or serve naan bread on the side.
