In India, no meal is considered complete without some form of dhal, or pulses, on the table. Every part of India has its own version of how to prepare this simple, humble, yet nutrition packed dish, and there’s a reason why the importance of pulses on the table has been maintained across generations.

 

The fact is, pulses are heart healthy. Research has shown that eating pulses can lower blood cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and help with body weight management, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease. Pulses are low in saturated and trans fats, and high in soluble fibre, which are very important for a heart healthy diet.

Pulses are also great for your general health, and are nutritious to eat, any time of day.
