Are yellow split peas the same as yellow lentils?
No, but they can be interchanged if necessary. Yellow split peas may take a bit longer than yellow lentils (dal or dhal) to cook but they don't take as long as green split peas. As legumes they have similar characteristics, but there are differences in taste and texture.
