Dal Moong

Dal moong is known by many names, including mung daal, yellow mung daal, and mung dahl. Dal moong is a yellow lentil that has been split and husked. Once de-skinned, the dal moong is yellow in color and has a flat oval shape. It is a very popular ingredient in East Indian cuisine for its versatility, nutritional benefits, and taste.

Nutritional Benefits of Yellow Lentil

Yellow lentil has a lot to offer in the way of nutrition, just like other varieties of lentil. It contains high amounts of plant protein and dietary fiber. Other nutritional benefits include:

  • Good source of calcium
  • Rich in potassium
  • High amounts of B complex vitamins

Because yellow lentil is rich in many vitamins and minerals, it is an excellent choice for anyone who is sick, pregnant or nursing, or suffers from digestive problems.

Cooking Indian Dahl Dishes

Mung dahl cooks quickly and is easy to digest, making Indian dahl dishes perfect for the summer season or anytime that you need to whip together a meal in a short amount of time. Popular Indian dahl dishes include soups, stews, grain dishes and more. For super-fast cooking, be sure to soak overnight.

  • Simmer in vegetable stock with ghee and spices. Serve over rice, millet or quinoa.
  • Make healing soup with mung daal, vegetables, ginger and ghee.
  • Make Kitchari, a popular, nourishing Indian dish thought to promote digestive health and well-being.

Mung Daal Veggie Burgers

Place ½ cup chopped onion, ½ cup chopped parsley and 1-2 cloves minced garlic in a food processor. Pulse until very finely minced but not totally pureed. Add 2 cups cooked mung daal, 2 cups cooked basmati rice, salt and pepper to taste. Process until mixture begins to form a ball. Shape into 4 large or 6 medium “burgers”. Cook in Coconut Ghee or Garlic Ghee 3-5 minutes on each side. Serve on buns with cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard, avocado slices, pickles, and anything else you love.

Reviewer: AD from New York, NY United States  
This package was packed brilliantly, it was obvious care and thought and planning had gone into the packing. Some one had studied how things could get damaged or shifted around in transit and had worked out solutions. Thank you.

Reviewer: J from NE PA, USA  
Am making vegan scrambled "eggs" with this daal, and the black salt (+more ingredients) and I get to have scrambled "eggs" for breakfast again!  Excellent quality, excellent delivery - thank you!  I'll be looking for more recipes with this daal and ordering more again soon from Pure Indian Foods.

Go Mung! March 26, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Ordered 4 bags of the split mung beans for a week-long kitchari detox of sorts; they shipped promptly (without excessive packaging, which I consider a plus) and I am very pleased with the quality of the product!
