This colourful soup is a good way to combine dal and vegetables, giving your little one the combined benefits of protein from dal and iron, folic acid, vitamin A and fibre from vegetables.

Since this soup uses naturally flavourful veggies, you do not need any spices in this soup. Plus, the unique garnish of crumbled paneer adds to the taste and nutrition content of this Dal and Vegetable Soup.

Serve it lukewarm with whole wheat bread sticks and watch your baby dip them into the soup and munch them with relish.
