Arhar dal is one of the most common dishes that is made in homes on a daily basis. This cereal is very nutritive and full of proteins. To make arhar dal more tasty tomatoes, ginger, garlic and onions are added to it In combination with pigeon peas make a well-balanced human food. The dried peas may be sprouted briefly, then cooked, for a flavour different from the green or dried peas. Sprouting also enhances the digestibility of dried pigeon peas via the reduction of indigestible sugars that would otherwise remain in the cooked dried peas.
