These lentils are small and lens-shaped, with a range of colors that include reddish-brown, greenish-brown, and even black. They are a staple ingredient in many traditional dishes and are valued for their versatility, nutritional value, and relatively short cooking time.

Key Characteristics:

Color: Masoor whole beans come in various colors, with red and brown being the most common. The choice of color can vary depending on regional preferences and availability.

Flavor: Masoor whole beans have a mild, earthy flavor with a slightly nutty undertone. This makes them an excellent base for a wide range of savory dishes.

Nutritional Value: These lentils are a powerhouse of nutrients. They are an excellent source of plant-based protein, making them a valuable component of vegetarian and vegan diets. They are also rich in dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, and contain essential vitamins (such as folate, vitamin B1) and minerals (including iron, potassium, and magnesium).

Culinary Uses:

Soups and Stews: Masoor whole beans are frequently used to prepare hearty soups and stews. They cook relatively quickly, making them a convenient choice for weeknight dinners.

Curries: They are a common ingredient in Indian and South Asian curries, adding both flavor and substance to the dish. When cooked, they absorb the flavors of spices and seasonings well.

Salads: Masoor whole beans can also be sprouted and used in salads for added texture and nutrition.

Side Dishes: They can be used as a side dish, often tempered with spices and served with rice or flatbreads.
