Lentils & Beans
Beans and lentils are relatively inexpensive, have a long shelf life, and are perfect for making quick and wholesome meals. My pantry is always stocked with beans and lentils. Lentils are rich in nutrients, high in protein and fiber, and are quick-cooking, making them the perfect choice for busy weeknights.
Here you will find a variety of beans and lentils recipes from Indian and other cuisines. Learn How to cook beans in an Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker. Make some comforting, one-pot meals like dal tadka with pot-in-pot rice. Beans and lentils can also be used to make soups, chili, and dips.
Some of my favorite Indian recipes are Sai Bhaji (Spinach Dal), Rajma Masala, Green Moong dal, and Mixed Lentils Dosa. Great with some rice or naan on the side.
