This mildly-flavoured zero oil Carrot Soup is an ideal start to a light dinner. Carrots have a large amount of vitamin A, an excellent antioxidant that cleanses your body of free-radicals.
Prepared with low-fat milk, this soup features surprisingly low on the calorie meter too. Thickened smartly with protein-rich moong dal, and flavoured with onions and black pepper, the Carrot Soup is indeed a very tasty way to stay young and energetic.
- Combine the carrots, onions, moong dal and ¼ cup of water in a pressure cooker, mix well and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside to cool completely.
- Once cooled, transfer the mixture into a mixer and blend to a smooth purée.
- Transfer the mixture into a deep non-stick pan, add the milk, ½ cup of water, salt and pepper,mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Serve hot.
