 Lentil Dhal 

     ' Lentils are low in calories , high in fibber and full of protein. These pulses are predominantly Brown , green and red. For this Indian Dish I am using Split red Lentils.

This Lentil Dhal is so full of flavour and a great vegetarian dish ,good as a main course or as a starter
