The most common way of preparing dal is in the form of a soup to which onions, tomatoes, and various spices may be added. The outer hull may or may not be stripped off. Almost all types of dal come in three forms:  unhulled or sabut (meaning whole in Hindi), e.g., sabut urad dal or mung sabut;  split with hull left on the split halves is described as chilka (which means skin in Hindi), e.g. chilka urad dal, mung dal chilka;  split and hulled or dhuli (meaning washed), e.g., urad dhuli or mung dhuli in Hindi/Urdu. The term dal is sometimes contrasted with the term gram, used by English speakers in the Indian subcontinent for pulses that are whole rather than split.

Dal is frequently eaten with flatbreads such as rotis or chapatis, or with rice. The later combination is called dal bhat in Nepali and Bengali. In addition, certain types of dal are fried and salted and eaten as a dry snack, and a variety of savory snacks are made by frying a paste made from soaked and ground dals in different combinations, to which spices, nuts, cashews, etc. may be added.
