Ask Plated: What Is Daal?

Find out more about daal, which refers to both the Indian ingredient and dish.

In Indian cooking, the word daal refers to both the ingredient and the dish. Broadly, it refers to legumes such as beans, peas, and most often, lentils. They are hulled and split, then prepared in thick, hearty stews. This deeply fragrant dish is typically served with rice or traditional flatbread alongside to soak up all the rich flavors.
