What's So Special About Dal?

Dal. It seems like such an unassuming dish. Yet, dal is loaded with nutrients and delicious flavors that nourish both body and soul. Its low cost and high nutritional value has made dal a staple of Bangladeshi diets for thousands of years.

This plant-based food has no fat and has a low glycemic index. Dal contains all 9 essential amino acids and lots of fiber and micro nutrients like manganese, selenium, iron, folate, and B vitamins.

"I grew up eating dal. It's my soul food."

Ruhel Islam, Owner

A delicious bowl of dal also provides folic acid, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and lentils provide an alkaline boost to help balance your pH levels and reduce cholesterol. And let's not forget the spices which aid digestion.


Here at Curry In A Hurry, we think of dal as Bangladeshi Soul Food.

Our chefs cook up the thick, hearty masoor dal that was Ruhel's favorite growing up in Bangladesh. Our traditional cooking method is slow-going with many steps, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Each ingredient is added with much love and gratitude, slowly stirred to savory perfection, and served to you with all good wishes.

This month, our dal is featured in Compassionate Action for Animals' Vegan Comfort Food Challenge. To learn more or to vote for Curry's Dal, click here.

When I went to India, my guidebook urged travelers to "branch out... because you can't just eat dal and rice every day." Well you know what? For five weeks that's exactly what I did. I did branch out, but I also managed to eat dal and rice every day for over a month and I never once got tired of it.
