This unusual soup has been prepared from masoor dal, which is known for being rich in protein and zinc. Onions and garlic impart an enticing aroma. I’ve blendarised this soup to give it a nice creamy texture without actually adding cream! it’s a great low calorie appetizer, which fills you up before the meal so that you do not binge on other high calorie foods.
