There is nothing more soothing than a bowl of protein-rich curry soup on a cool day! Masoor dal being an incomplete grain, it is important to combine it with protein-rich ingredients like paneer, to make a complete, nourishing soup. With tangy and flavourful ingredients, the soup also scores high in taste. Serve the Masoor Dal and Paneer Soup piping hot for a delicious protein-boost.
- Heat the oil in a pressure cooker, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the garlic and chilli powder and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
- Add the masoor dal, tomatoes and 2½ cups of water, mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Cool slightly and blend in a mixer to a smooth purée.
- Transfer the purée into a deep non-stick pan, add the salt and mix well.
- Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes.
- Add the lemon juice and paneer and mix gently.
- Serve immediately.
