In brief: Yes

It is good but the problem with a lot of indian cooking (including dals) is that a lot of oil is used and one of the worst things possible - ghee.
Don't ever use ghee - it is nothing but purified fat. And cut down on the oil or use low-fat oils. Using ghee and high-fat oils will raise your triglycerides no matter how much mung beans or other dals you eat.
