Split Grains


Split Grains (Dal) is often translated as “lentils” but refers to a split version of a number of lentils, peas, chickpeas (chana), kidney beans and so on. If a pulse is split into half, it is a dal. For example, split mung beans are mung dal. A stew or soup made with any kind of pulses, whole or split, is known as dal.

Variety of Indian foods are made with lentils. From kichidi (simple rice and lentils) to soups, flat breads and even some noodles are made from lentils. Beans and lentils are a primary source of protein for many vegetarians all over the world.

Indian pulses are usually available in three types: the whole pulse, the split pulse with the skins on, and the split pulse with the skins removed. Pulses are used to make a wide variety of food in Indian cuisine. Pulses are often ground into flour, such as besan (garbanzo bean flour). This flour is used to make a huge variety of foods. Pulses are also soaked and then ground into a paste (often with soaked rice) to make variety of dishes.
