About the Product
Red lentils, also known as Masoor Dal or Lal Masoor, are split and skinned Whole Brown Lentils. They are pink when raw and turn golden or yellow when cooked with haldi. This legume cooks faster than other dals and can also be prepared in a pot instead of in a pressure cooker. In this case it has to be soaked for an hour and then boiled with lots of water for easy cooking. Red Split Lentils are by far the quickest to cook of the lentil family. They need no pre-soaking unlike many legumes and as they are split (the skins removed so they split naturally into two halves), they cook very quickly.
