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.

As the recipe says, this soup is actually very soothing and delicious. Making and having this soup in a rainy day or in winter makes it very appetizing and is a good way to relax and enjoy the weather.
