In the Indian Subcontinent, dal refers to pulses such as lentils and beans, and split peas. The word is actually Sanskrit for 'split'.

Western countries tend to refer to dal as a particular type of dish made with these pulses, and in appearance are similar to curries, but usually less spicy.

This cashew dal will go well with rice, potatoes, or flat bread.
