Lentil soup recipe,a healthy low calorie soup and a quite filling one too perfect for diet watchers. Today i wanted to make some some soup and i tried this soup from tarla dalal recipe book, and it came out very well. According to the recipe the soup was made with masoor dal. Since i don’t have masoor dal at home, I replaced that with yellow moong dal.
