Contains a whole spice pouch, a "tarka" spiced sauce and cooked lentils
‘Tarka daal’ is a staple across most Indian homes and is the most popular lentil curry in North India. The word ‘tarka’ refers to the cooking of spices and flavours, which are added to the cooked lentils. Our Classic Lentil Tarka Daal has a buttery smoothness that is elevated with the addition of caramelised onions, rich tangy tomatoes, zingy ginger, garlic and carefully selected Indian spices.
This daal is perfect for a fuss-free, 5-minute meal with rice or naans, but is also really versatile and makes the base for a range of delicious healthy dishes for the more adventurous cook. Taking inspiration from our recipe pages, you can transform it into comforting soups, crispy lentil cakes kedgeree and much more. It’s a fantastic meal to keep on hand in your cupboard for busy days. Perfect for vegetarians or meat-free days.
