Dal (Lentils) is a comfort food in every Indian home. Dals are quick and easy to make, super delicious and available in many varieties. Lentils and pulses are the major plant-based source of protein in Indian cuisine for vegetarians and vegans. When combined with cereals (like rice and roti) they deliver complete protein that includes all 22 essential amino acids. Dals have numerous health benefits. They are very good for digestion and gut health due to their high fiber content. They are also rich in iron, folate, and soluble fiber. They are low in fat and calories. They are high in essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They go well with any type of loaf breads like French bread, Banquettes, Multigrain Bread or Indian Breads like Roti, Naan, and chapatti. The combination of cooked Rice and Dal is heavenly. It's made in various forms such as Plain Dal, with different vegetables, or just with authentic tempering. Overall, dals are a great healthy plant based food type to include in one's daily diet owing to their high protein content.
