Not a "Main Meal" portion for 2, but great taste

3 stars

Pros: Very healthy ingredients, very quick to prepare, very authentic flavourings, very convenient - easy prep.' Cons: Suggests, "Serves 2-3 as a main - no further ingredients required." This is rather nonsense, on its own, without adding further items, ie; vegetables, rice, chicken etc, this produces the equivalent of 2 x reasonable portions equivalent to 2 x "cuppa soup." I would not consider a portion of this Daal, as a "main meal," more likely a snack portion. Also considered its restricted content, it is not that cheap. If you want to turn it into a main meal, you would have to pour the contents over either, vegetables, brown rice, chicken, or any combination.

Love it

5 stars

This is really great for a quick easy meal. I always add some chunky chicken piecesto it and serve with rice.

Takes minutes to make an authentic daal! So easy t
