Key Information

Black Urid Dal also called Black Gram, Black Lentil (although not actually a lentil) and Vigna Mungo has a surprising number of health benefits, including its ability to boost energy, protect cardiovascular health, reduce pain and inflammation, improve immunity, aid in maintaining skin health, prevent diabetes, build strong bones, strengthen the nervous system, and optimize digestion. It is much appreciated for their high digestibility and lack of flatulence induction. To cook the whole gram, it is best soaked overnight and cooked slowly over low fire until its falling apart. With modern advancements, it is now mostly cooked using a pressure cooker. Black gram is used most famously to make dal, but it also plays a large role in many other cultural dishes in India and South Asia. From soups and stews to curries, bread, and side dishes, a black gram is an indispensable part of exotic cuisines.
