BLACK GRAM SPLIT WITH SKIN (URAD DAL)
Urad Dal, also known as Split Black Gram, is one of the famous lentils used in southern Asia, especially in Indian cuisine. It is trendy in Punjabi as well as South Indian cuisines.
“The most common dish made out of this is Punjabi Dal Makhni, apart from regular dal with ginger and is also used in making vada, idli, and dosa batter. Urad Dal takes a bit longer to cook than the other usual dals. However, if you have the patience, try cooking it over a slow wood fire, adding an aromatic and smoky tinge. ”
“Black gram or urad dal holds a higher protein value than most legumes. “
