Swad Masoor Matki (Whole Red Lentils) Also know as: Lentille, Lense, Lenteige, Adas, Masoor, Mercimek, Saabat Masoor, Desi Masoor, Masoor Matki, or Crimson.
These lentils are crimson, which is a deep orange-red color. Whole Red Lentils are tiny lens-shaped pulses which have traditionally been used as a meat substitute. (A pulse is the dried seed of any legume, such as beans and peas. Lentils are the seed of a small shrub and are dried after harvesting.) Lentils have been eaten and originated in South-western Asia along the Indus River. They are a staple food for many South Asian cultures.
Like all lentils, they're really healthy - a great source of protein and fiber - and a great winter ingredient. They retain their shape when cooked, and have a wonderful, nutty, earthy flavor. They need no presoaking, only simmering in liquid for about 30 minutes - a light stock is good, water is fine. Then, when still warm, toss with the flavors you want them to absorb: they'll drink up the perfumes of herbs and spices, or aromatics such as garlic or celery leaves, to create an immensely comforting, satisfying result.
