Cooking with Chana dahl
Chana dahl looks just like split yellow peas but they are actually very different. Chana dahl holds its shape very well in cooking, has a slightly sweet flavour and can substitute whole chickpeas in nearly any dish. They are a hearty and filling additive to soups, salads, tagines, vegetarian curries or casseroles. With all legumes, they are best soaked and chana dahl needs around 4 hours (in the fridge) and then rinsed well. To cook add one cup of chana dahl to 3 cups of water, bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until soft.
