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 beans are 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. The fiber, iron, and protein in chana dal beans offer a powerhouse of goodness for the body.
