Coconut Dhal with Flatbread


Dhal is the perfect comfort food for any time of the day. It is flavoursome, nutritious and, as we love to describe it, a hug in a bowl. It can be eaten with rice, but we prefer to eat it with freshly made flatbread.

The main ingredient in a bowl of dhal is lentils or split peas, those are basically what the term, “dhal” means. Split peas and lentils both contain good amounts of  protein, vitamin A, thiamin (vitamin B-1), riboflavin (vitamin B-2), niacin (vitamin B-4), pantothenic acid (vitamin-B-5), pyridoxamine (vitamin B-6), folate (vitamin B-9), cobalamin (vitamin B-12), choline, vitamin C, vitamin K, calcium, iron, magnesium, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, dietary fibre and omega fatty acids. These are only a few of the nutrients our coconut dhal contains. Their descriptions and benefits can be found in our Nutrient Index.

We hope you enjoy our dhal recipe.

Bon Appétit!
