A Versatile Staple
Pulses have been an indispensable part of the Indian culinary journey since ages. They are an excellent source of protein for vegetarians. Their use has been mentioned in important historic texts, which emphasize specifically, the versatility and nutritious goodness of Moong Dal. Once cooked, the delectable aroma and smooth velvety texture of Moong Dal makes it a popular choice for everyday Indian cooking.
Whole Moong finds special mention in several South East Asian cuisines, especially stemming from the widespread use of white Moong sprouts. Moong Chilka, on the other hand, comes with the added benefit of extra fiber and is used in the preparation of lentil soups, khichdi and pakoras. A bowl of delicious Moong Dal or Moong sprouts is considered the weight-watcher’s best friend.
High-grade unpolished Green Moong, and Moong Chilka, are characterized by a uniform green colour, shape and size without excess shine and external particles. Without husk, the best Moong Dal is dull-looking and is dark mustard in colour.
The Tata Sampann Advantage
Moong Dal, available in three variants - Tata Sampann Moong, Tata Sampann Moong Dal and Tata Sampann Moong Chilka are procured from the most reputed farms of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Tata sampan Moong dal passes through vigorous quality checks to maintain consistency in the quality. Passing through the Sortex maintains uniformity in colour and grading process ensures uniformity in size and shape. Tata Sampann Moong variants are unpolished and do not undergo harmful polishing procedures involving water, oil, leather, detergent, etc. They are low on moisture content, giving you more dal per gram and thus more nutritional goodness like fibre, protein and other essential nutrients.
