While listing out the various kinds of healthy (read:protein rich) soups we like, we thought this soup was the most often made and liked at home and so wanted this to be included in this marathon. I thought this soup was one of the easiest to prepare and the fastest to disappear too!!

This protein filled soup is for Day 5 of Srivalli's Blogging Marathon - Edition 9. Also check what my fellow marathoners are upto.

Black Eyed Peas Soup

Ingredients -

Black Eyed Peas (Bobbarlu/Alasandalu) soaked, optionally pre-treated  1 cup
Moong Dal 1/4 cup
Salt as per taste
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Curry Powder 2 tsp
Red Chilli Powder 1/4 tsp
Pepper as needed (Optional)
Lemon Juice as needed

Method Of Preparation - 

Pressure cook black eyed peas and moong dal with turmeric and adequate water. (I added about 3 cups of water).

Once the pressure cooker has sufficiently cooled down, blend the dals and add all the spices/flavorings as needed. 

Transfer the contents into a sauce pan and simmer until the soup turns creamy. Adjust the consistency as required by adding more water if required.

Squeeze in lemon juice generously and mix well.

Serve hot and enjoy the protein punch!!
