Brown Lentils

Using Brown Lentils in Indian Cooking

They work beautifully in dhals as a dish on their own but are also a great compliment to meat and vegetable dishes.

These lentils hold their shape when cooked and can be used in salads as well as for Indian dhals. They take about 30 minutes to cook through so I tend to pressure cook these.
