Usually i used to soak either a packet of dry beans or few kgs of various varieties of dry beans and i will freeze them to use later while cooking, this is really very handy for me even if i forget to soak channa or any other dry beans for making out any dish...these frozen beans are ready for anytime to help us for cooking..Two months back i have freezed some white channas, rajmas,black-eyed peas, blackbeans,double beans,kala channas,dry green peas, after using for various dishes there were some leftover frozen beans and i mixed everything and pressure cooked them with salt which i planned to temper and have as sundal, but finally my little mind changed as usual and i finished making out some delicious cutlets with raw banana and with some left over breads, have a look at the picture how crisps these cutlets are, yea they tastes marvellous with rice for our lunch and also suits prefect for snacks as my lil one enjoyed having these crispies with ketchup..
