This mildly-flavoured zero oil Carrot Soup is an ideal start to a light dinner. Carrots have a large amount of vitamin A, an excellent antioxidant that cleanses your body of free-radicals. Prepared with low-fat milk, this soup features surprisingly low on the calorie meter too. Thickened smartly with protein-rich moong dal, and flavoured with onions and black pepper, the Carrot Soup is indeed a very tasty way to stay young and energetic.
