    asda chickpea dahl yumyum!

    Just had some asda chickpea dahl for my lunch, hadn't had it in ages and forgot how yummy it is!

    Just thought I would tell everyone incase anyone hasn't tried it or for the newbies :D

    Really it has many plus points - its free on green and extra easy, its cheap (about 70something pence I think), it comes in a tin so easy to always have in your cupboard or take to work, its not too spicy or too bland just right.

    Oh and the biggest plus point I think is that I find I am most susceptible to getting a takeaway when I have had a long day and just can't be bothered making food. This satisfies my cravings for yummy indian food - have this, boiled rice and a wholemeal pitta (HEB) SORTED :D

    I second this - I always have a few tins of it in my cupboard. It's nice to bulk out with superfree veg too.

    I was actually thinking of having this tonight!

    I agree its yummy its nice cold too with salad. If not near Asda a company called Sundar make it also and that is also free on green and EE days, I get mine in Morrisons, really tasty food and you feel like your having a curry without any guilty bits!!

    (I must admit didn't fancy it but its definatly worth trying I thought it would be really boring but it isn't):D

    good luck all

    It's on the tins aisle - should be with the other tinned vegetable/meat curries.

    I love the Asda stuff too...although my Asda hasn't had any for the last couple of weeks.

    If I know I'm not going to have time for a proper dinner I'll used a flavoured cous cous on the bottom of a tupperwarre box, add a few chopped eggs, then a tin of Asd'a Chipeak Dahl. Heats up grand in the micro at work, and, voila, a hearty meal that keeps me filled up till midnight!

    I bought the Sundar one, but I thought it had a couple of syns, so I haven't opened it yet...

    Will have to try this! With a 1 year old, work and a uni course quick meals are always a winner here! x

    Great post - thanks!

    Bought a can today and had it for lunch with asda w/m pitta (B), a yogurt and cucumber dip and a salad. Tasty, quick and will prove to be a great cupboard standby.

    Shared it with DH and DD (age 7) and they enjoyed it too :D
