Urad dal aroma

DiveFan | Aug 5, 2007 04:45 PM

I'm cooking Dal Makhani for the first time and noticed that the whole urad dal that I purchased has a distinct, fairly strong aroma. The aroma persists after soaking and rinsing.
I can't recall any other legume having a noticeable aroma.
Is this normal or do I have a unusual sniffer?
