This unusual soup has been prepared from masoor dal, which is known for being rich in protein and zinc. Onions and garlic impart an enticing aroma. I’ve blendarised this soup to give it a nice creamy texture without actually adding cream! it’s a great low calorie appetizer, which fills you up before the meal so that you do not binge on other high calorie foods.
- Heat the oil and fry the onions for 1 minute. Add the garlic and chilli powder and fry again for 1/2 minute.
- Add 6 teacups of water, the tomatoes, masoor dal and salt and cook in a pressure cooker till the first whistle.
- When cooked, blend in a mixer.
- Boil for 5 minutes.
- Serve hot with lemon juice and garnished with boiled rice.
