My pantry is always stocked with all kind of lentils and I love each one of them so much. I love how healthy and versatile they are and let’s not forget how delicious they are too. We are a big fan of lentils- curry, sundal, hummus,salad, anything!
Annoying part about this is I ALWAYS forget(or a lil lazy) to soak it and most of them need overnight soaking. But my love for these lentils beats my laziness and I’m proud of myself for this. I usually make only sundal with kala channa and love it. Found this awesome awesome recipe
