We offer finest quality huskless split lentils processed using industry’s best standards, packed and exported as requested by customers. Lentil split dal is basically part of legume family and is grown for its lens shaped seeds. Split lentils are easy to prepare and take considerably less time to cook. Lentil split dal comes in different varieties and colours. The raw lentils are sent to processing mills where the husk is removed and the pulses are split to get split lentil dal.

The lentil (Lens culinaris) is an edible pulse. It is a bushy annual plant of the legume family, known for its lens-shaped seeds. It is about 40 cm (16 in) tall, and the seeds grow in pods, usually with two seeds in each. In South Asian cuisine, split lentils (often with their hulls removed) are known as lentils. Usually eaten with rice or rotis, the lentil is a dietary staple throughout regions of India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. As a food crop, the majority of world production comes from Canada, India and Australia.

  • Spilt Red Lentil – Split red lentils are made from splitting the whole red lentil. The skin is removed and the remaining reddish-orange seed is then split into two halves. A product of Canada, and among the best in the world known for quality.
  • Spilt Green Lentil – Spilt Green Lentils can be easily identified by their large and flat shape. They take a little longer to cook, but retain their shape during cooking. Green Green Lentils have an exceptionally soft and mealy texture with warm flavour. This makes them suitable for soups, side dishes, vegetable bakes and likes. Nuragro offers the whole seed variety of green Green Lentils which are exported from Australia, Turkey and Canada.
