Similarities:
(i) They both can stay for months
(ii) They do not show any growth and some other characteristics of life.
Differences:
(i) Whole moong daal(seed)respire but broken moong daal does not respire.
(ii) On providing suitable conditions whole moong daal turns into a new plant but broken moong daal cannot.

  Therefore we can say whole moong dal is living while broken moong dal is non-living.
