These lentils do not require soaking before cooking. Super quick to cook these lentils are ready in just 8-10 minutes and loose all their shape making them easy to blend with other product.
If you like them a little softer they will cook in boiling water still in just 5 minutes. For a delicious dahl or lentil mash the lentils will be ready after boiling for 10 minutes and become pale yellow in colour.
To retain their lovely deep red colour only cook by poaching for a few minutes,
