If ‘Vegetable Soup’ sounds too similar, read this recipe before you decide! This version of the ever-popular soup comes with an innovative twist, as it uses a stock of moong dal, tomatoes and onions, which imparts a very pleasing consistency and flavour to this nutritious soup. With loads of crunchy veggies and a tinge of tomato too, each spoonful of this toothsome soup is a feast to the taste buds.

Healthy soup with simple flavours. Tastes good. Vegetables give a good texture to the soup.
