Dal is both an ingredient and a dish. It refers to a type of dried split pea or lentil and the deeply spiced stew made from simmering the split peas until nicely broken down. This warm, spicy dish is both comforting and filling!
Dried peas are an excellent source of fiber and protein. They’re also jam-packed with tons of other nutrients such as manganese, copper, folate, vitamin B1, phosphorus, vitamin B5 and potassium – all good things!
