Soup is something which my husband and I can have anytime of the year. Lentil soup is one of our favorites. I had posted the lentil soup recipe a while ago. This is another one with slight variations. It is super delicious and filling.

So, here is the recipe:


Red onion- 1 medium size chopped

Garlic- 8 cloves

Tomato- 1 Large chopped

Ginger- 1 inch crushed/chopped

Masoor dal (Orange lentils)- 1 cup (washed)

Kashmiri chilly powder- 3/4 tsp

Homemade or store bought Garam masala- 1/4 tsp

Turmeric powder- 1/4 Tsp 

Mild green chilly- 1 chopped

Cumin seeds- 1 Tsp

Water- 3-4 cups (depends on how thick you need)

Rice bran oil-1 1/2 TbSp

Coriander leaves- 1/2 cup chopped

Sea salt – To taste


In a hot pan, add oil, followed by ginger, garlic, green chilly, and onion, and cook for a little while. Add cumin seeds, chilly powder, garam masala, and turmeric powder. Stir to combine. Into this mixture, add tomatoes and coriander leaves. Cook until tomatoes are soft.  Add water followed by lentils. Let the lentils cook. Once it’s cooked, use a hand blender to blend everything well. The soup is ready.

You should definitely try this super easy soup.
