Urad dal is also known as Split black lentils and Black gram dal. Split urad dal retains the skin and also has a strong flavor. Skinned and split urad dal is creamy white and somewhat bland. When boiled, the dal has an unusual mucilaginous texture. Black urad dal is very delicious in taste and easy and quick to prepare compared to whole black urad. Split black lentils are not as mild as white urad, which have been split and skinned. ORGANIC - Dals are organically grown without pesticides and fertilizers. Organic farming helps nature in regenerating and successfully sustaining us and our environment. Split Black Gram Beans are 100% naturally cultivated in the humid and temperate areas of India.
