There are three types of Urad Dal:

  1. Whole urad
  2. split black urad with skin
  3. and split washed white urad

Urad dal has black skin, while the inside is creamy white. This white lentil is rich in protein and the iron content is good for improving hemoglobin count. Urad dal is great for vegan and low fat diets.

  4. Dear Ms. Manjula,

    I have been experimenting in the kitchen and find your website a very useful guide. However, please share recipes for toor, masoor, chawli as these are not listed here.

    1. Arham, this is just a photo to show the different ways this dal can be found in the grocery store. By seeing the pictures, you will know what the different types look like. There’s nothing to video for this.
