Summary feedback
Gits Dal tadka is a  preparation of Bengal gram, red gram and lentils cooked with  herbs, spices and butter.
Preparations like these usually contain a high amount of salt and so could be skipped by those with high blood pressure or lifestyle diseases.
This preparation contains edible vegetable oil which is sunflower oil. Oils like sunflower oil contain large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. Consumers need to maintain a healthy balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid consumption.
The foodnetindia Safety rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 6 (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
Ready to eat meals as these usually are known to contain a high amount of salt which could be a problem for  those with kidney disease, hypertension and some other lifestyle diseases.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 6 (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
Gits Dal tadka contains wholesome and healthy ingredients like Tur Dal ( Red Gram Dal 8% ), Masur Dal (Red Lentils 7%), Tomato,Onion,Ghee, Garlic, Chana, Dal ( Split Bengal gram), Ginger, Cumin, Turmeric, Coriander leaves, Asafoetida. However, the fact that these ready to eat meals may contain high salt content and because they are made in Omega 6 rich edible vegetable oil makes it the reason why we have given it a lower rating than it deserves.
We say why not make your dal tadka at home instead of buying a convenience meal.
