British Vaal Dhal, Organic, Hodmedods (400g)

(63.7p per 100g)
Organic Vegan GlutenFree

The British Vaal dhal is inspired by the flavours of Gujarat but inside are organic British-grown fava beans. An aromatic blend of spices season this delightful dhal and just a little heat and a stir will have it ready for serving.

The dhal naturally separates in the tin so give it a quick mix to combine the smooth sauce and beans. Add a little water or stock for a curried soup that warms you inside and out.

A bag of beans and a little curiosity may sound like the start of a fairytale but Hodmedod’s success is no fantasy. They source peas, beans, lentils and other pulses from British farms, encouraging a new diversity of crops to return to the country. The breadth of their range stretches from half-forgotten Iron Age fava beans to lentils grown in cutting edge agro-forests. With crops more readily available close to home, Hodmedod’s are shrinking food miles down with every bean.
