Mudisenagalu guggillu is an amazing healthy recipe and never be bored. I’ve prepared them as a Naivedhyam to God in one of the navarathri days. They are rich source of protein. Brown chickpeas are soaked in water overnight. Specifically for soaking chickpeas during special pooja days or any auspicious occasions a pinch of turmeric is added. Soaked chickpeas are cooked in a pressure cooker and later tempering is done using tempering ingredients. Here I present tasty and healthy mudisenagala guggillu to relish anytime. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
