My Tip:

Spice bag can be used and tea bag too while cooking the chana in pressure cooker. The garbanzo has high fibre content and helps our colon cells to stay optimally active and healthy. Above all it gives satisfaction of full feeling when consumed, and is effective in eliminating our sense of hunger and appetite.
