You can have a look, every Indian store will have them, but ask for 'urid dal' vigna mungo is a botanical name, i guess. They also sell a spice mix for mild lentil curry (dal masala) if you can get your hands on the one made by National foods, that's the best one. Some cheaper masalas contain artificial colors and flavours - not cool. I love urid dal because when you cook it it has very creamy texture, real comfort food
