Shop Indian Dal

Indian dal is nutritious and flavorful. Dal is one of the principal foods of the Indian subcontinent where the term can be used to mean either an ingredient or the dish made from it.  Dal is tasty, satisfying and easy to make and is an ideal choice for a quick evening meal. More than 30 different types of dal (or dhal) are made across India daily in Indian homes. The basic dish contains lentils or other legumes flavored with aromatics and spices. Dal is best cooked in a
pressure cooker which makes it easier and quicker to dal and also the dals cooked in a pressure cooker turn out tasty and creamy

In Indian cooking lentils and beans make up the dal family. We carry many of these varieties in our online store. Cook up one of the following or mix two and cook together: red lentils (masoor dal), yellow split peas, adzuki beans, red beans, chana dal, or hulled and split mung beans (moong dal).

Dals in India refer dal soups, curries, lentil stews and are served with nearly every meal. Dals are flavored with spices and tomatoes and onions.

Dals and beans are dense in nutrition, an excellent source of protein, fiber and complex carbohydrates and low fat.

Beans unlike lentils need to be soaked overnight. When flavored with spices beans are very delicious and also healthy and a boon for a low fat diet. Soaking beans is important to remove indigestible enzymes that cause flatulence.

Cook beans until beans are tender and soft. Cooking times vary with the variety, age and size of beans; generally you're looking at about 1 to 2 hours. Cooking is faster in a pressure cooker.

Cooking lentils and dals is easier than beans. Firstly it does not require soaking and they cook in 30 minutes. Although cooking lentils is faster in a pressure cooker about 10 minutes.

Common Dal & Bean Varieties
Toor dal is the main ingredient for the South Indian recipe called sambar. Tuvar or toor dal is the most common dal used in India for spicy Indian dal or simple lentil dal masala. Toor dal shines in soups where they're cooked until creamy to bring out their full, sweet flavor. Serve them with a dollop of Indian raita yogurt.
