Pulse
is a collective term for the edible seeds of beans, peas and lentils.


Gram
- an Indian term that most commonly indicates the whole unpeeled form of dried beans, peas and lentils, but loosely used and sometimes refers to the peeled and split form.


Dal
- [Dhall] - an Indian term that most commonly indicates the peeled and split form of dried beans, peas and lentils, but loosely used and sometimes refers to the whole form. Dal is also the word for a finished dish of cooked dal, particularly in Southern India.


In South Asia, a distinction is made between pulses that are left whole and those that are split. Whole seeds are called gram, while split seeds are known as dal. The term dal can be confusing because, while it means split pea or bean, it also refers to the dish prepared from it. There are at least 60 different kinds of dal made from peas, beans or lentils.
