Chicken is now cheaper than tur dal


HYDERABAD: A common south Indian staple, tur dal, has touched Rs 200 per kg in the retail market of Hyderabad, angering consumers and agriculture experts who are alleging massive hoarding behind the sudden spike.

On Friday, the average price of the most commonly consumed red gram (tur dal) soared to even Rs 210 in some online retail stores.

With prices of moong and masur dal also hovering between Rs 113 and Rs 150, many denizens said eating chicken was comparatively cheaper and a better option. “Since we live in a joint family, we are used to consuming large quantities of tur dal everyday. So now the best option seems to be chicken, which is now available at Rs 100-110 per kg,” said Snehal Rao, a resident of Banjara Hills.

Owing to the fact that tur dal is a common kitchen ingredient, the impact of the sudden price rise has left a devastating impact on many consumers. “We never knew that one day chicken would be cheaper than dal,” said a smiling B Asish, a resident of Ameerpet.
