WHAT IS MUNG DAL?

Mung Dal (also called Mung Daal, Moong Dal,  or Split Mung Beans) is made from whole mung beans that have been hulled and split, resulting in a yellow lentil-like legume.

These small legumes cook very quickly (approx. 30 min) and there is no need to soak them before cooking. Just make sure to wash them really well to get rid of any grit or dust.

They are high in dietary fiber and an excellent source of protein which makes them a great addition to a well-balanced diet.

You can find it in health food stores, Asian supermarkets, or online.
