Jiva Organics Toor Dal (Split Pigeon Peas) Review #JivaOrganic
February 21, 2015 by

Usually when I make soup, I soak yellow split peas overnight so it can cook faster. Now that I have a pressure cooker / slow cooker, I started making soup using this method instead of stove top. Yellow split peas and split pigeon peas are two different things, but I don't think the taste will be much different, so I'm using my usual method for soup for "testing" the Jiva Organics - Organic Toor Dal.

Jiva Organics Toor Dal (Split Pigeon Peas) Review
Product Information:

  • It is available in a 2 lb bag
  • Organically grown
  • No artificial flavors, pesticides or chemicals
  • Available on Amazon.com for $9.99

The price is a bit higher than what I usually pay for similar items, but this is organic so that is to be expected.

What I Liked:

The two lb bag will last a long time. When it comes to the soup I made, Toor Dal has a bit of a nutty taste (really mild) compared to yellow split peas. It tastes delicious and makes a nice thick broth, so I decided to try it with rice and cabbage. This was the first time I put "soup" on top of rice, but seeing how thick the broth for the soup was, I was interested in trying something new. It was well worth it and since I have a lot, it should be able to last a few days, and eaten in a variety of ways.
