Insects are planted in lentils, so clean them with these easy methods
Dal is used in almost every household in India. Somewhere in the morning, somewhere in the evening, somewhere both the pulses are cooked. Tell that there are many types of pulses, like toor or arhar dal to gram dal, urad dal, moong dal, masoor dal, and many other types of pulses. Pulses are delicious to eat and delicious to eat every day, as well as protein-rich grains, which are considered good for many types of diseases.
For your information, let us tell you that due to daily use, people store many types of pulses in their kitchen, but often keeping pulses for a long time causes worms in them. In such a situation, pebbles and dirt become more in the lentils, which can be cooked only after cleaning them. Due to pebbles and insects, pulses get completely spoiled slowly and because of this, you should know how to easily clean insects and pebbles from pulses, so that they can be stored for a long time.
Mustard oil- Along with cleaning the insects in the pulses, mustard oil also saves from dampness. If you want to keep pulses less then you can use mustard oil. For this, mix one spoonful of mustard oil in two kilos of pulses and dry the pulses in the sun.
Garlic- Tell me, use garlic to protect grains from insects. The smell of garlic is very strong, which drives away insects. Keep the whole garlic in the grain and let it dry, while the dry buds of the garlic will remove insects from the grain.
How to clean pulse pebbles-
Spread the pulses on a plate and take out pebbles or soil from it.
Tell me, pebbles can be easily removed by spreading pulses on the ground or in a big tray.
- If there is dirt in the lentils, then the lentils should be washed two to three times. This also removes the polish of the pulses. Lentils can be washed with rinsed water as long as they are discolored and muddy.
