Navrangi dal is a colorful and flavorful mixed lentil dish from Indian cuisine. “Navrangi” translates to “nine colors” in Hindi, symbolizing the nine different varieties of lentils used in this preparation. The lentils typically include a combination of red lentils (masoor dal), green gram (moong dal), pigeon peas (toor dal), split chickpeas (chana dal), and others.
To make Navrangi dal, the lentils are first soaked and then cooked until soft. They are then combined with a mixture of spices, including cumin, turmeric, coriander, and sometimes garam masala. The dish is usually garnished with fresh cilantro and served with rice or Indian bread like chapati or naan.
Navrangi dal is a nutritious and wholesome dish, rich in protein and essential nutrients. Its vibrant colors and aromatic flavors make it a delightful addition to any Indian meal.
