All questions

I bought some yellow lentils a while back when I meant to buy yellow split peas. The peas will become soup later this week, but I'm not sure what to do with the yellow lentils. I've checked out many of the dal recipes on this site and most if not all use red lentils (which I already know and love). Can I use the yellow lentils interchangeably with the red?

You may have toor dal, which is yellow. If you do (and even if you don't), try this wonderful dal recipe from Pauljoseph;

If the lentils are split and skinned you should be able to substitute them for red lentils in recipes. You could also use them in place of split peas in soup (again split and skinned.)
