Toovar dal is beneficial to the digestive system as it is high in dietary fibres. It is nutritious as it contains calcium, minerals, vitamins, iron and folic acid which are needed for a healthy body. Toovar dal is rich in proteins and carbohydrates. All these properties make toovar dal an important addition to the daily menu for a healthy meal.

Toovar dal is processed and packaged by our company using modern technology. Processing and packaging is done under strict supervision to maintain its nutrients without the addition of chemicals or other inorganic preservatives. The dal is first processed and cleaned and then packed using a superior quality of food grade packaging material to give the grains a longer shelf life, free from moisture. It can be refrigerated in its original packing for about a year and it will still retain its natural colour and flavour. The dal is also polish free and gluten free making it nutritious and healthy.

Toovar dal is used in a variety of dishes all over India. It is used along with other ingredients to make “sambar” in South India and to make the traditional “dhansak” by the Parsees. This dal has to be soaked for an hour before cooking in a pressure cooker with other ingredients, as per the recipe. This saves on cooking time and on fuel.

At home the dal should be stored in an airtight container to keep it fresh and free of moisture for a few months.
