They are frequently combined with rice, which has a similar cooking time. Masoor Brown have a mild, often earthy flavor, and they are best if cooked with assertive flavorings.

  • Culinary Uses

The beans are cooked when they burst and the water turns syrupy. Whole masoor generally take about 30 minutes in a covered pan and 5-6 minutes in a pressure cooker. Foam may form during the first few minutes of cooking, which can simply be skimmed off.
