These are Mung (or Moong) Beans that have been de-husked and split to form yellow Mung Dal. This Mung dal has a mild taste, soft texture and cooks quickly. As the dal does not hold its shape, it is used in soups and blends, to give taste and body.
– Mung Dal is extremely light and easy to digest. Hence it is often served as a soup or with toasted bread during illness.
– It is low on calories.
– It is rich in protein and fibre.
