A perfect low-calorie substitute for creamy tomato soup in which the creamy texture is retained by the addition of protein rich moong dal and low-fat milk. The use of only 1 tsp of butter for 6 servings makes this recipe truly healthy. Using toasted whole wheat bread croutons for serving is just the rich crunchy contrast to the fried croutons made with oodles of oil and refined flour.
