  1. Dal

    Dāl or 'thuvaram paruppu' in Tamil or Pappu in Telugu is a preparation of pulses which have been stripped of their outer hulls and split. It also refers to the thick stew prepared from these pulses, an important part of Indian, Nepali, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, West Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine. It is regularly eaten with rice and vegetables in southern India, and with both rice and roti throughout northern India and Pakistan as well as Nepal where Dal Baht is the staple food for much of the population. Dal is a ready source of proteins for a balanced diet containing little or no meat. Sri Lankan cooking of dal resembles that of southern Indian dishes.
