red lentils/masoor dal

Masoor dal or red lentil is actually a brown lentil that has been split & skinned that is orange inside.
Masoor (also known as red lentil) is a brown lentil that has been skinned and then split. It is orange on the inside, hence the name. Masoor dal has a pleasant earthy flavour and is commonly used to make dal, soups and stews.

Indian pulses are usually available in three types: the whole pulse, (sabut), the split pulse with the skins on, (chilka dal) or the split pulse without the skin, (dhuli dal).

Sabut simply means "whole" . Dal means "split" with or without the skin. Chilka means with skin & dhuli means without skin.

For example, split (sabut) urad beans are urad dal, split sabut masoor beans are masoor dal.
