Greek yellow lentils - "fava"
While I was visiting greece, I was offered pureed yellow lentils that the locals call "fava salad". Now I am trying to find out what is this fava - google tells me that fava is butter bean or horse bean (Vicia faba). But this is not the bean I am looking for. I am looking for a yellow split bean that looks like chana dal or toor dal, but was different from these. Anyone with greek background or living in greece could throw some light on the topic? Do you have any additional names for this food? I would need to find the latin name of that bean for further research.
