Dals: Taking the organic route
With people nowadays growing more and more conscious of what they eat and where is that food coming from, the response for organic foods is on the rise. Easily available these days, compared to the situation a few years ago, foods grown through organic farming methods are produced without the use of chemical fertilizers and/or pesticides.
They are farmed using natural methods be it irrigation or fertilizers and are hand-milled. These sustainable practices keep the soil healthy which result in making the produce more nutritious. Organic farming, furthermore, helps combat soil erosion, encourages biodiversity as well as helps conserve water resources, which indirectly benefits people, too.
Organic pulses, then, serve as more potent sources of nutrients, especially protein. It comes as a boon for vegetarians seeking to increase protein content in their diets.
