Mung Beans (uncooked)

The Mung bean, also moong, is a small green legume particularly associated with Asian cuisine.

Mung beans are sprouted into bean sprouts, and a type of vermicelli called bean threads is made from mung bean flour, with both being used commonly in South-East Asian cuisines. South Asian cuisines use mung beans both whole, and split (as moong dal – small, yellow, and often skinless).
