Masoor dal also known as whole red lentil, is a kind of dal widely eaten in India and other parts of South Asia.
It's made from a small, brown-skinned lentil that reveals a reddish-orange coloured interior after it is hulled and split.
It's one of those dishes that taste even better the next day when all the flavours have married together. Masoor dal is relatively quick-cooking among the different types of dal.
It can be served with Rice or Roti (Indian Bread).
