Jo’s Dal is completely delicious and so nourishing. I often grab one after a difficult day at work, or if I’m drained, and I can almost feel it instantly nurturing my soul as well as my body.

Jo uses skinless, pre-soaked, slow cooked lentils which make them more digestible, reduces the phytate and lectin content (some people have difficulty digesting and assimilating foods which contain these natural substances), and makes the nutrients more readily available and absorbable.

The combination of slow-cooked organic lentils – packed full of protein, B1,B6, folate, iron and other micronutrients, and high quality protein – with immune-boosting onions, garlic and chilli, plus fibre and antioxidants from seasonal local veggies and MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) and immune-boosting lauric acid in organic coconut cream make Darlin’ Dal an incredibly nutrient-rich meal.

Darlin Dal is the perfect nutrient-dense vegetarian/vegan meal for anyone wanting to maximise their health and well-being. A no-fuss meal that will help balance your mood, control blood sugar and energy levels, and nourish your entire body all your round.

    5 star review  Darlin’ dal is a little haven of calm and healthy goodness in the heart of the Western suburbs. The space itself is wonderfully welcoming and bright so even though Jo’s dals are packed ready-to-go you might be tempted to sit down and eat right there, while having a read about Ayurveda or a chat with Jo about love of food, of music, of life... and you could even grab a scrumptious chocolate brownie afterwards!.. The whole range of dals is superb (although I have a soft spot for the coconut-based ones), and the quality and freshness of Jo’s organic spices comes through loud and clear. Jo’s dal is the ultimate comfort food, except it’s made fresh daily, with love, and 100% good for you. I don’t know of any other place like this. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Darlin Dal is more than food, it is a healing and vital experience. Jo’s knowledge of the vedas and understanding of Ayurvedic cooking is poured into every pot of Dal - bringing you the most creamy, delicious, healing food you will ever encounter. This type of cooking and understanding of the healing properties of food is rare in this part of the world, and you could say divinely guided 🙂 Once you have experienced it, you will never forget - my experience after eating Jo’s food is one of calm and inner peace. My intestines are soooo happy and my digestion is soothed and smooth. Thank you Jo for brining Darlin Dal to Adelaide, we are blessed to have such higher level food readily available! Much RESPECT! Xxx Darlin Dal is for EVERYONE! get there as soon as you can 🙂 xx
