The herbal lentil soup is a light soup that has pressure-cooked moong dal as the base stock with corn flour imparting an extra thickness. The soup is mildly flavoured with herbs like celery and dill that are sautéed in butter to release their fragrance. A sprinkling of fresh pepper and salt, and this soup is ready to serve. An ideal comfort food, this one!
