Chana dal is the split kernel of a variety of chickpea known as desi or bengal gram. It has a sweet and earthy flavor, and the cooked bean is about the size and shape of a corn kernel. This ancient legume has been around for centuries and remains a healthy and satisfying comfort food in India and the Middle East today. Chana Dal is one of the many legumes used to make dal, the family of Indian legume dishes that form the foundation of Indian cuisine. A delicious simmering bowl of dal with added spices like cardamom, turmeric, cloves and garlic, will easily sweep you away to the streets of New Delhi.

Chana Dal is very nutritious and easy to digest. These little beans are a powerhouse of lean protein, fiber and iron. They're packed with nutrients, such as folic acid, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc.

Chana Dal makes a quick-cooking, exotic addition to dals, soups, curries, dips, pilafs, fritters, salads, casseroles, and rice or whole grain dishes. Toss them in a little olive oil and your favorite spices and roast them in the oven for a wonderfully tasty, healthy snack. See the back of our package for two fabulous exotic recipes, Spicy Bengal Dip and New Delhi Dal.
