There are many different types of masoor or lentils. Our American supermarket carries masoor which is flatter and bigger than the desi counterpart. The Indian stores carries one with the name "masoor matki" which I am not sure what it means. because matki is another bean. Then there is French puoy lentil which is darker in shade. In Mumbai, mom always stocks a masoor variety called "Belgaum Masoor". It is supposed to be smaller and tastier than the rest. It is seasonal. I love it the most.
