Tarla Dalal    Hello, Instead of boiling the dal separately, we would suggest making the recipe as per the above-mentioned recipe and do not to strain it.

This soup is so light, with a mild dal taste, and lightly sauteed cheesy paneer. Just too good.

This is mainly a delicious rich Palak soup with a bit of moong dal and a few paneer pieces. To make it healthier, don't fry the paneer and cook in olive oil instead.
