Product Information

PRODUCT INFO

Ivory white lentils (urud dalin India) are actually black lentils that have been peeled. They are traditionally ground with rice to make the flour used in dosas. When eaten whole, they are mild flavored and have a soft texture.

The lentil, a dried seed of a small shrub, is an ancient staple in southern Asia that has been consumed for over 8,000 years. Besides possessing a mild earthy flavor of their own, lentils take on flavors well and have extremely high levels of protein (26%) and iron. When mixed with grains (traditionally rice) on the same plate, the resulting meal provides complete plant-based protein.

STORAGE

Lentils should be stored in a cool, dry place until needed.

RECIPES & TIPS

Ivory white lentils can be cooked as you would other lentil varieties or ground into flour.

As a group, lentils pair well with garlic, onions, vinegar (sherry or wine), mint, olive oil, citrus, and sausages.
