Masoor Dal is Hindi for 'orange lentils', 'red lentils' or 'pink lentils'. Basically these are the same lentils with different names. But note that these are not the same as Puy lentils, which are a green French lentil. The Masoor Dal lentils can be split or whole, and both types are used in Indian cuisine.
