Weevils in my lentils!!

caramella | Apr 27, 2007 01:54 PM

So I just made a pot of lentils (toor dal, to be specific). Although I washed them really really well before cooking, I noticed some tiny dark floating things on top when they were done, and some tiny worm-like things too (larvae? gross). I skimmed the bugs off, but am a bit grossed out to eat the cooked lentils.

Should I eat them? The bugs were fruit-fly-sized and there were maybe a total of 12 in a big pot of dal.
