In an Indian vegetarian diet, arhar dal is one of the common ingredients for the supply of dietary proteins. One of the desirable qualities in a dal is its short and easy cooking time and the usage of arhar dal as a component of diet can be enhanced by processing it to reduce its cooking time without altering its physical appearance, nutritive value or keeping qualities.
