This recipe for a Curried Carrot Soup has been in some scrap paper which I happened to go through while cleaning up my closet. I have no clue from where I had copied it. It looked like a fairly old piece of paper. But anyway when I was falling short of ideas for a hearty soup, this paper came to my rescue!
The original soup didn't have the Masoor Dal but I had boiled it anyway. 

This vibrant soup is for Day 6 of Srivalli's Blogging Marathon - Edition 9. Also check what my fellow marathoners are upto.
