Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home.
An Easy, Nourishing Soup in 25 minutes!
Moong dal provides almost the same health advantages as mung beans. It tastes good both raw and boiled. It is rich in antioxidants, fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, etc. Mung beans are good for overall health, particularly for breastfeeding women.
Moong dal soup is easy to make. You need only a few simple ingredients, and the preparation takes less than 25 minutes. This soup is moderately thin, a bit sour (because of the lemon), and appetizing. Sip it on a cold evening and enjoy the taste!
Now, I will share with you the recipe for making this soup.

Serves four people
- 1 cup moong dal, washed with water
- 1/4 cup carrots, cut in long strips
- 2 to 3 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon fresh peppercorns, roughly powdered
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 2 teaspoons fresh coriander, finely chopped
- salt to taste
- 5 to 6 curry leaves
- 1 teaspoon butter, or ghee or olive oil
- Wash the moong dal with some water. Add 2 cups of water. Add chopped carrots and some salt.
- Pressure cook until 2 whistles and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Remove the cooker lid and allow the pressure to release naturally. Set aside.
- Heat the butter/ghee/olive oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Throw in the cumin seeds. Let them splutter. Add the moong dal mix. Also, add 2 to 3 cups of water.
- Bring the mixture to a boil. Add the remaining salt and pepper powder. Continue boiling the mixture for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn off the heat.
- Add the lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves. Stir well.
- Now, the moong dal soup is ready to serve! Divide it equally into 4 bowls. Serve hot!
This is a revitalizing and filling soup. Enjoy the taste!
