  • Soak the legume at least for 5 hours so that its soft after getting cooked.
  • You can even replace jaggery with sugar.
  • The number of whistles depends on the soaking time and the variety of soya bean.
  • Do not overcook the legume and make it mushy, it should be cooked soft at the same time not mushy.
