  19. Hi Indira,

    Hope you had a wonderful Diwali!
    I simply love your site! I was checking your earlier posts - you sure have lots of patience.. with all those elaborate recipes! All those lovely photographs make your site even more appealing! Even Sanjeev Kapoor doesn’t have as appealing a site as yours!

    I know my query would be a little inappropriate here, is ‘Yellow split peas’ and ‘Bengal gram dal’ one & the same? I was checking your site for ‘Yellow split peas’….

    Thanks,

  20. Thank you all for the warm greetings!
    I wish you the same as well. and I hope you all had a marvelous festival day and lovely weekend.

    Hi Madhu: Thanks and Shubha Deepavali!
    Yellow split peas are from peas (vatana, yellow/white peas)
    Bengal gram (chana dal or sanaga pappu) are from black chickpeas.
    So these two are totally different ingredients but often many mistake them for same.
    Although they have a similar color, size and shape, they taste entirely different.
    You can see the bengal gram - where and how in a photo: click here.
    Hope this helps.

  21. I made that mistake too, Indira! and was wondering the taste was not right! Thanks a lot for the link! What do we use Yellow split peas for?

    Thanks again,
