The possibility that a bowl of masoor dal will satisfy the nutritional and dietary demands of an entire meal is not denied. It has different positive effects on one's body and health.

It's very easy-to-make when it comes to its preparation and is often considered to be the tastiest of all the lentils, thanks to its tinge of sweetness. It does not take much time for this inexpensive Dal to soak or roast. As per our own taste, we can cook it by adding different spices to it. 

There are 230 calories in a single cup of Masoor Dal, about 15 grams of dietary fibre and about 17 grams of protein. Being abundantly rich in iron and protein, this dal is an ideal vegetarian go-to choice. 

It must be regularly used in a balanced diet due to its diverse food and dietary advantages.

Here are some other health and nutritional advantages of Masoor Dal:

Helps to stabilise the level of blood sugar: A huge portion of dietary fiber is stored in Masoor dal. It ranks low on the glycemic index and prevents the amount of blood absorption of food into the small intestine. It thus ultimately slows down the rate of digestion and protects the blood sugar level from abrupt or unwanted changes. So those with sugar issues, diabetes and lack of insulin output should drink it on a daily basis.

Efficient Weight Loss Solution: For most weight loss diets, Masoor dal is recognized to be the ultimate ingredient. It has the right amount of carbohydrates to have a feeling of satisfaction, but the fat content is poor. Its high fiber content slows down the process of digestion, leading to its weight loss impact. To provide you with all the necessary vitamins, proteins and other nutrients, one cup of masoor dal as a meal is adequate.

Assets Anti-Ageing: Masoor dal is an antioxidant powerhouse that can efficiently reduce cell damage. Its ample nutrient proportions appear to improve the immune system, thereby serving effectively as an anti-ageing meal. It will help you preserve a complexion that is youthful and vibrant. Masoor dal may also be added directly to the skin, in addition to its intake.

Nourishes Bones and Teeth: Masoor dal is a rich source of vitamins and other nutrients such as calcium and magnesium that are important for preserving healthy teeth and bones. In order to enjoy the maximum benefits, sufficient proportions must be included in the daily diet.

Beneficial to a skin that shines and radiates: If a safe, spotless and radiating skin is what we are looking for, Masoor dal will come to the great aid. Maybe it will help get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots. It can lighten the skin and remove the tan by applying a face mask made of ground masoor dal, turmeric and rose water. To reduce dryness on the skin, add milk to the above-mentioned mixture and apply the facemask overnight.

Keeps the heart healthy by decreasing cholesterol: Again, masoor dal can effectively lower the amount of cholesterol in the body due to a high proportion of dietary fiber. It can also help to get rid of the body's excess cholesterol. Therefore, it increases blood supply and decreases the risk of heart failure of some kind.

Side effects of inadequate consumption

Masoor dal has no major side effects. There is no questioning, though, at the same time, the fact that an abundance of something is evil. Excessive intake of masoor dal can also lead to adverse effects such as kidney disease, toxicity of potassium gas and side effects of high amino acid proportions. In certain individuals, it can also induce an allergic reaction.

352 calories and 24.63 g or 44 percent of suggested daily protein values are kept in a 100-gram serving of masoor dal.
