Tired of making run-of-the-mill soups with dal and vegetables? Here is an off-beat option prepared with Iron rich wholemasoor and chawli. Chawli is an extremely healthy iron rich green leafy vegetable but most people wonder how to prepare it such that it appeals to the whole family. This is a good way out. While making the Whole Masoor and Chawli Soup, the mixture is not strained at all, so we get a creamy, healthy and fibre-rich soup. Rich in iron, this soup helps build haemoglobin levels and is a good option for those with anaemia too.
- Combine the whole masoor, chawli leaves, tomatoes and 3 cups of water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- Blend the mixture in a mixer to a smooth purée and keep aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the garlic and onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the whole masoor-chawli purée, chilli powder, lemon juice, salt and ½ cup of water,mix well and bring to a boil, while stirring occasionally.
- Serve hot.
