Winged beans were treated (i) by direct addition, (ii) by coating or (iii) by presoaking with (NH4)2CO3 (0.5% solution) together with Na2CO3 or NaHCO3 (0.5% solution) to reduce the cooking time. Cooking characteristics studied were cooking time, water uptake, and dispersed solids %. Addition of these compounds reduced the cooking time by 50% (150 to 70-75 h). (i) imparted alkaline taste and undesirable colour to the product, whereas (ii) and (iii) were found to be desirable methods.
