Masoor dal or Red Lentil is an important part of the diet in many parts of the world, especially in the Indian subcontinent which has a large vegetarian population. It is basically a whole lentil without skin on it and is red in color. It does not require soaking before cooking as it is very soft. With over 26 percent protein, this lentil has the highest level of protein, by weight, of any plant-based food after soybean and hemp.
We source Masoor dal from the farmers of Mokama, where these lentils are grown on the taal (lake). Mokama Taal is a perennial water system and exhibits enormous biodiversity.
Mokama is a town and a municipal council in Patna district in the Indian state of Bihar. It is located 90 km east of Patna on the southern banks of the river Ganges. Mokama has the 2nd highest amount of lentil production in India
Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) promoted by JEEViKA have emerged as promising economic platforms in tackling the challenges of small farmer agriculture. In the face of rising input costs and lowering margins, these FPOs are delivering value by leveraging economies of scale, improved inputs and technologies at lower costs and bringing the small farmer to larger markets hitherto out of their reach.
