Masoor Dal Soup ~ Red Lentil Soup

This month, as part of BM #33-week 1 , I have chosen to feature 3 recipes from three celebrity chefs. Today's soup is from Sanjeev Kapoor

It made for a comforting, hearty and filling soup as part of dinner. It is simple, no-nonsense kind of a soup which we all loved.

Masoor Dal Soup ~ Red Lentil Soup

Method Of Preparation -

In a pressure cooker, heat oil and saute onions and garlic until they are translucent. 

Add tomatoes, masoor dal, salt, pepper, red chilli powder and 3 cups of water.

Cook until the contents are mushy (typically 2-3 whistles depending on the type of cooker used).

After the pressure cooker cools down, use an immersion blender to blend the contents into a fine soup.

Boil some more and remove from fire. Squeeze in lemon juice as required.

Serve hot with croutons for a fine appetizer.
