yellow mung dal versus yellow split peas

jcs | Jan 21, 2007 09:48 PM

Can anyone help me with the difference between these? i have a very good dal recipe, but it calls for yellow mung dal (which i don't have) ... can i substitute yellow split peas without totally changing the flavor? and if i can, how much longer will the peas take to become soft before tempering, as opposed to the mung (which I think is 40 minutes or so)? thanks!!
