Chana dal is dried split chickpeas and Toor dal is dried split pigeon peas. I make this in the Instant Pot where the Chana dal holds up structurally and the Toor dal breaks down giving the dish a creamy texture. Along with ginger, garlic, and spices I like to mix in a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles and some carrots. Plain water is added as the liquid component so the dish is entirely Vegan. Served over raw kale and steamed white rice it is a complete healthy, delicious dinner in a bowl.
