Urad Dal is a small black bean, similar to a lentil, that has been split and hulled with the outer black skin removed for quicker cooking and easier digestion. Urad dal has served as a staple in Indian cuisine for thousands of years and is as an integral ingredient in the popular dish, dal makhani. This protein-packed legume is commonly prepared as a soup and paired with rice or flatbread, or ground into a flour and used as the base of a savory batter. Once cooked, urad dal becomes slightly heavy and unctuous, which makes this food especially grounding and nourishing. The dal itself is subtly sweet, inherently warming, and highly nutritious and combines well with a variety of grains to support healthy bone and muscle tissues. Prepare urad dal with your favorite herbs, spices, and vegetables for a nutritious addition to your Ayurvedic diet.*
