Green Gram Lentil ( Moong Dal)

Green Gram Lentil are moong beans, available in Indian market in three forms

1. Whole lentil which is green in color.
2. Skinned and split lentil . They're flat, yellow, and quick-cooking. They're relatively easy to digest.
3. Split lentil with skin. They are green, flat and more nutritious. Take longer to cook then skinned lentils. Skin provides fibre.

Lentils cook more slowly if they're combined with salt or acidic ingredients, so add these last.
