|Hare Krishna, Dipti ji. Pranam.
In the purport to Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 4.169, it is written: "Masura dhal and urad dhal are also considered nonvegetarian. These two dhals contain a great amount of protein, and food rich in protein is considered nonvegetarian."
During caturmasya there is a one-month fast from urad dhal but can be taken other eleven months of the years. Masura dhal is mainly for Muslims and is not eaten by devotees at all.
Masoor dal for Muslims? Where does it say that? In the Vedas or Kuran?
Sorry, noticed I am replying to an old post
One can eat carrots.
No mention of not eating carrots mentioned by Prabhupada.
Its the Alium family of veges to be avoided like onions, scalllions, garlic, shallots...
Protein is not the reason why red dal is forbidden. If that was the case, why are we allowed to eat other dals and nuts high in protein? Many higher than red dal.
Red dal, is not the highest in protein content.
Quinoa (the name is derived from the Spanish spelling of the Quechua name kinwa) is. This the #1, perhaps, the most used Ekadasi food in the USA, in place of rice. I dont know if it is available in India.
Also, I would like to know exactly where Prabhupad forbade offering/eating soy bean. Doesnt seem accurate.
