Using moong dal in a soup makes for an innovative Indian recipe! Soft, pressure-cooked moong dal actually lends itself as a grainy and creamy base.

Flavoured with a tadka of cumin seeds, mustard and pepper in ghee, the soup is not ready to serve until you add small paneer cubes to enhance the texture. Squeeze in fresh lemon juice for a surprise tang, and ladle it out into soup bowls, piping hot!

To make a wholesome and satisfying meal serve along with Chick Pea Salad and Mini Chilli Cheese Naan .
