Yellow peas

Indian dishes are usually easy to prepare, especially if you have not cooked „Indian“. Most of the time, the reason you don’t prepare an „Indian“ dish is because you can’t get hold of Indian vegetables. But that’s not the problem with the mitti handi dal. To prepare a mitti handi dal, all you need is yellow peas and a few ingredients you probably already have at home.

The yellow peas are not only magical, but also healthy. They are rich in protein, folic acid, potassium and calcium, as well as vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B6, vitamin C, iron, omega 3 fatty acids, selenium, manganese and vanadium. The yellow peas also have a low glycemic index, are gluten-free and are therefore also aimed at people with gluten intolerance.
