Dals, Pulses & Dry Fruit
Indian pulses are usually available in three types: the whole pulse, the split pulse with the skins on, and the split pulse with the skins removed. Dal is often translated as “lentils” but actually refers to a split version of a number of lentils, peas, chickpeas (chana), kidney beans and so on.
Dried fruit is fruit from which the majority of the original water
content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying, or
through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators.
