Organic Golden Curry Dhal

Rich, fragrant, and hearty, our Organic Golden Curry Dahl contains nourishing warm spices, like ginger and turmeric, that make this dish the perfect antidote to the cold weather months.

Dahl tends to firm as it sits, so make sure to add a splash or so of water if you’re reheating it. This dish is vegan but trust us, it is full of protein thanks to the lentils.
