Split Moong Dhal Soup

Moong Dal is excellent source of protein and easy to digest. I am supposed to consume some proteins as part of a diet and made this. I have added Fresh Spinach and tomatoes to make it extra nutritious but this can be made without spinach and Tomato. Moong Dal cooks quickly compared to other Dals so make sure you do not overcook


1/2 cup split moong dal (cooked in 2 cups of water)
1 cup chopped spinach (optional)
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (optional)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 green chilli cut length wise
1/2 tsp grated ginger
pinch of turmeric and asafoetida
1/2 tsp oil
salt to taste
1/2 tbsp lemon juice (optional)

I pressure cooked Moong Dal in 2 cups of water along with tomatoes, spinach and salt.

for tempering
heat 1/2 tsp oil and add cumin seeds. Once they crack add green chillies, grated ginger, turmeric and asafoetida and fry for few seconds and mix with the cooked Dal. Adjust water and salt to your desired soup consistency.

This can be eaten with Rice or Roti by adding less water
