Pigeon pea or toor dal is a simple classical recipe from India, but one that should truly belong to the world. Pigeon peas are an excellent all round source of protein, essential nutrients, complex carbs and dietary fiber. That makes them a staple in many Indian households.
Our pigeon pea dal here includes tomatoes and is seasoned with an array of Indian spices, including cumin, ginger and turmeric. Throw in some garam masala and dill leaves, and you have a colorful and truly healthy recipe.
But toor dal, more than anything else, is an experience. Evoking memories of home and childhood, and of making and sharing things with the people you love. Memories of fragrant aromas wafting through the air, kids growing tall and healthy on this staple dish, and vibrant colors that brighten your mood.
A taste of true nostalgic goodness.
