MADE WITH OUR DELICIOUS
Classic Lentil Tarka Daal

The word ‘tarka’ refers to the cooking of spices and flavours, which are added to the cooked lentils. Our Classic Lentil Tarka Daal has a buttery smoothness that is elevated with the addition of caramelised onions, rich tangy tomatoes, zingy ginger, garlic and carefully selected Indian spices.
