A thick, simple and filing soup with just 100 calories...Chop the carrots into small cubes so they cook faster.

A great combination of carrots and moong dal. The soup tasted best when it had a little thick consistancy..very filling too..

Carrots and Moong Dal combine to give a good healthy soup. Low fat milk lowers cholesterol. The soup is filling and mildly spiced with peppercorns.
