Daal Mash

Daal Mash

Daal Mash (Black lentil) is so full of  B vitamins thiamine and folic acid, as well as several minerals, notably iron and zinc and it is one of the oldest cultivated lentil in the world. As history suggests The earliest development was around 11,500 years ago separately in both the Fertile crescent and at Chogha Golan in modern-day Iran, where wild barley, wheat and lentils were cultivated and where domesticated forms of wheat appeared about 9800 BC. In present day India and Pakistan the black lentil has been in cultivation from ancient times and is one of the most highly prized pulses of India and Pakistan. Daal Mash plays an important role in the diets of the people of Indian sub-continent.
