I have a question about the recipe "Roasted Pumpkin, Sesame & Coconut bisque" from Panfusine. What is Urad Dal? I'm thinking it's a lentil, but I'm not sure which.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Urad is a white lentil that resembles mung in appearance, They may be from the same family, except that soaked Urad tends to be a tad glutinous You'll find it in most Indian Grocery stores. When toasted they have a wonderful Meaty aroma. the pic below shows the dehusked whole urad, which may be used in this recipe. Hope this helps!
Thank you! I know what to look for now.

There was a long thread about this a couple of months ago. If you enter urid dal (as it's spelled on my bag of it) in the search field in the upper right corner, then click on Hotline from the drop down menu, it will pull it up. It's loaded with lots of wonderful information.
What a great thread. Thanks for the suggestions
It was such a rich conversation and I gleaned amazing suggestions from it. I hope it helps you too. I've had a rich and expanding food experience from it.
