Thanks for your input, YT2095........

Found this in the Dictionary........

pectin
[PEHK-tihn]
Present in various ripe fruits and vegetables, this natural, water-soluble substance is used for its thickening properties in the preparation of jams, jellies and preserves. The gelatin-like pectin is added to fruits that don't have enough natural pectin to jell by themselves.


dal; dhal, dhall
[DAHL]
A spicy dish made with lentils (or other PULSES), tomatoes, onions and various seasonings. Dal is often pureed and served with curried dishes. In India, the term "dal" refers to any of almost 60 varieties of dried pulses, including peas, mung beans and lentils.

yup :)

the "Chana" bit states which pulse, Chickpea in this case, like Gram flour.

I think the same is in Canada too, they would call Jam "Jelly", and what we call Jelly, they call Jello (or something like that).
