Chickpea Dhal

Chickpea Dhal

Posted 2016-07-02 by noshnoshfollow
Chickpeas work wonderfully in a dhal - giving the meal a genuine substance as well as soaking up the spices and flavours they are cooked in.
& #8203 ;
This is a simple dish that can be whipped up after a long day at work with little hassle. It provides a great source of fibre thanks to the rice and legumes, immune-boosting properties from the spices, and is a source of meat-free protein which is more readily digestible by the body.

You could alternatively serve this dhal with warmed pita breads if preferred.
