"Urad dal, also known as white lentil or black lentil is a kind of bean that is grown in the southern parts of Asia. These lentil-like beans have black skins covering creamy white interiors. Whole urad dal derives their strong, earthy flavor from the black skins and is often used in curries. Split urad dal retains the skins and also has a strong flavor. Skinned and split urad dal are creamy white and somewhat bland. Also known as black dal, urad dal is used as a major ingredient in Indian cuisine for preparing a healthy diet. Lentils are one of the healthiest foods because they are naturally low in fat, high in fiber and folate and are a good source of protein, essential amino acids, vitamin B complex vitamins, iron and minerals.
