Lentil Soup / Dhal Soup


On and off I would get some sudden gyan of what I'm eating and what I'm missing out. One such occasion happened last day and I felt I am not feeding myself with enough proteins and iron. Our gym instructor always says we need lots of proteins if we have to tone up quickly and build healthy muscles.

When mom and I listed out ingredients that have proteins and iron we came up with all lentils and greens varieties. So quickly checked the pantry for ingredients and picked moong dhal and methi leaves to make this simple yet very healthy soup :)



Moong dhal - 1/2 cup
Fenugreek / methi greens - 1 bunch
Garlic - 3 pods



Wash and pressure cook dhal along with methi leaves for three whistles.

Allow it to cool down.

Grind the cooked contents into a smooth paste.

Chop the garlic into small pieces.

Now take 1 tsp of oil in a pan and saute the garlic pieces. Now pour in the ground dhal greens mixture and add adequate salt and water. Let it boil for 5 mins.

Sprinkle some pepper and serve hot.

Delicious and super healthy dhal soup is ready.
