Chana dal, also known as Bengal gram, is the most widely grown dal in India. Its is easy to digest, it is nutty to taste with a sweetness to it. Chana dal has a very high nutritious value. It is praised by diabetics for its incredibly low index on the glycemic index. (The glycemic index measures the effect of foods on blood sugar levels.). It may reduce the risk of heart disease and some forms of cancer.

Bengal gram is often simmered with zuchini and winter squashes. Use with Ajika Dal Masala and Ajika jaggery.

Easy to cook it pairs well with veggies especially sweeter ones like pumpkin, squash, zucchini and carrots.Make excellent soups, side dishes and purees.

Use with our Ajika Dal Masala/Spices for tasty and convenient cooking.
Lentils are:
-All-natural, Low In Fat, Zero Cholesterol
-An excellent source of protein and fiber.
-Extremely nutritious and very easy to prepare; you need onion, tomatoes and fresh vegetables, ginger paste for dal and dal spices available in our store.

The USDA Nutritional database shows that one cup of cooked lentils contains:
•220 calories
•17 grams of protein
•Less than 1 gram of fat
•15 grams of fiber
•0 cholesterol
•Iron, phosphorus, folate and plenty of other good stuff

Lentils and split peas are low in fat and high in protein and fiber, and they have the added advantage of cooking quickly without the need for soaking. So, while you can buy canned lentils, they are so easy to cook from dried that I really encourage you to give our lentils a try. This is how easy they are to make - Boil 1 cup washed and drained lentils with 4 cups of water a inch piece of ginger and salt. Simmer until tender on reduced heat for about 25 minutes. You can cook them in 10 minutes in a pressure cooker. Fry seasonings with onions and tomatoes and add to the lentils.

You can make lentils into soup, savory porridges or into stews and even spreads.
