Masoor Dal is an important dal (lentil) in the Indian subcontinent, which has a large vegetarian population. It is basically split lentil without skin and is red in colour. Boil the lentils to a stew-like consistency with vegetables and then season with a mixture of spices to make a tasty accompaniment for rice and rotis. It is used by a larger population since it has the highest amount of protein compared to the other lentils. Masoor Dal is very delicious and easy to cook.
