This interesting variation makes a great change for your palate. It works effortlessly with onions, garlic and tomatoes in it. The low-fat milk in the soup does not add cholesterol to the diet. The protein in the low-fat milk complements the protein in the lentils, thus making this a nourishing combination.

A thick, simple and filing soup with just 100 calories...Chop the carrots into small cubes so they cook faster.

Carrots and Moong Dal combine to give a good healthy soup. Low fat milk lowers cholesterol. The soup is filling and mildly spiced with peppercorns.
