Sometimes, the right combination of nutrients works better than a single supplement in overcoming a shortfall. In boosting haemoglobin levels for example, a combination of iron and protein will do the job better, as in the case of this Suva Chana Dal where the former brings in protein to support the rich iron content of the the latter. An assortment of traditional spices and spice powders together with tomatoes and onions does its job very well indeed, making this dal not just a nutritious offering but a lip-smacking treat too!

Dill may have a little strong flavour but the presence of dal mellows down the flavour of dill. It gives an international flavour to the indian dal.
