LENTIL SOUP RECIPE

Low calorie and Healthy Soup
     For the past one week it was raining heavily here and i am down with severe throat pain and headache. Today i wanted to make some some soup and i tried this soup from tarla dalal recipe book, and it came out very well. This soup was very filling and i didnt feel like having dinner after i had this yummy soup. According to the recipe the soup was made with masoor dal, since i have never used masoor dal  , i dont have masoor dal at home. I replaced that with yellow moong dal.
Lentil soup

INGREDIENTS:
MOONG DAL 1/2 CUP
BIG ONION 3 NO
TOMATOES 3 NO
