Organic Chana Dal
Chana dal are baby chickpeas that have been split and polished. They look and taste like small kernels of sweet corn. They have a sweet and nutty flavour. They are vegan and wheat-free.
An excellent ingredient in soups, salads, curry and rice dishes. Very popular in Indian dishes.
How To Cook
Soak overnight before cooking to reduce cooking time and improve digestibility. Drain and rinse. Cook over the stove - bring to boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 35 minutes skimming away foam from water.
Chana dal contains no cholesterol or trans fats, and virtually no saturated fat or sodium. It's a good source of zinc, and particularly rich in phosphorous and magnesium. A 1/4-cup (dry) serving provides 35% of your daily requirement of folate and 15% of your iron.
