Health tip:
​Dahl is a type of pulse that has many nutritional values. The health benefits of Dahl in general is that they are very rich in proteins. As many Indians are vegetarians, these different types of pulses provide them with main source of vegan proteins. 30g of raw dal gives 7g of protein. Dahl also has resistant starch which acts like fiber in the body and helps control blood sugar levels, clears bowels, aids in weight loss.
