Everything about Lentil :

Lentils are one of the best vegetable sources of Iron. This makes them an important part of a vegetarian diet, and useful for preventing iron. Iron is particularly important for adolescents and pregnant women, whose requirements for it are increased


A variety of lentils exists with colors that range from yellow to red-orange to green, brown and black. Red, white and yellow lentils are decorticated, i.e., they have their skins removed. There are large and small varieties of many lentils (e.g., Masoor Lentils). Lentils are sold in many forms, with or without the skins, whole or split.

Culturally, other pulses are sometimes called lentils but are actually beans or peas, e.g. "black lentils" Urad beans
