With the increasing awareness of the benefits of plant based diet, various previously ignored ingredients have come to the limelight now.
Lentils are one such entity which has been around since ages. We have always been told to finish our bowl of dal so that we get our dose of proteins.
It could be urad dal (black lentil), masoor dal (red lentil), toor dal (yellow lentil) etc. But did you know that apart from being rich in proteins, lentils have a host of other health benefits as well?
Among these lentils, red lentil or masoor dal is one of the most widely used lentils owing to its ease of use. It is highly nutritious and flavourful thus making it an ideal choice for healthy everyday cooking.
This low calories and high protein superfood is also a great alternative to refined flour which has zero nutrients.
