Complete with lentils or chickpeas, our daals are all you need for a delicious meal
‘Daal’ generally refers to ‘lentil curries’. We know that lentil and bean curries are bursting with healthy ingredients, but to most Indians, it is simply warming comfort food. In fact, a colloquial phrase for ‘meal’ is ‘daal roti’ - literally meaning lentil curry and bread.
The problem with making your own bean or lentil curry is the time it takes to soak and cook the lentils. Our daals come with a pouch of whole spices, the cooked lentils and a ‘tarka’ (a spiced sauce normally cooked separate to the lentils or beans and stirred in at the end) so you can have a delicious and healthy meal on the table in minutes.
I just wanted to thank you for the very delicious Classic Tarka Daal. I had it for dinner last night and found it was delicious. I was born in Lahore and Punjabi food is food for my soul. The daal tasted lovely and authentic.
I have tried all your daals and love them. For once, a meal pack that is restaurant quality; not only easy to make but delicious every time. I used to say the best thing I can make for dinner is a reservation. Now I just grab your daal packs from my pantry and dinner is served in 5 minutes.

I tried your Bengali Coconut Daal. Absolutely fantastic - the future for me looks to be made a deal easier with your products, which I have found - so far - to be quite superior to some of the mixes I have experimented with, and have a taste not far removed from home cooked meals
Thank you for a delicious dinner tonight. We had the Delhi Black Makhani Daal. It delivered on flavour, authenticity and heat level. We normally only enjoy mild curries, but this had all the flavour with just a tiny hint of chilli. We will definitely try more of your products.

The creaminess of the lentils [in your Classic Lentil Tarka Daal] infused with the soft heat of the chillies and mustard seed and the velvety tang of the tomatoes and onions made me realize just how good lentils can be. Once again, I thank you for allowing me the pleasure of your food.

We are also really proud that our daals won the Canadian Grand Prix Awards 2019 for best food product for the larder. We are biased, but we couldn’t agree more!
What we love to make with our daals
We love our daals as they are, wholesome and delicious but they also make a great cooks’ ingredient. In cooler months try adding vegetables and some stock to make delicious lentil soups. For special occasions, top with some crispy onions and a swirl of cream. You can also make delicious bean burgers with our channa/chickpea masala or crispy lentil cakes and even lentil-stuffed vegetables or breads. The options are endless - so, for a little inspiration, look at our recipes in the ‘Cook’ section.
