Additional Product Details

Description

Red Lentil originated in the Turkey-Cyprus region (Southwest Asia) and South Asia is a center of its diversity.

Red Lentils have been a part of the Indian subcontinent from ancient times. Red Lentil or Masura has been mentioned in the Brahadaranyaka (c. 5500 BC), a commentary on the
Rigveda (c. 8000 BC) and also in the Yajurveda (c. 7000 BC).  Ayurvedic treatises consider lentil to be a highly nutritious pulse, second only to the green gram or mung bean.
