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 / Red Lentil 3/4 cup
Onion, chopped 1/4 cup
Garlic 2 cloves, minced
Tomato, chopped 1/2 cup
Salt, Red Chilli Powder and Crushed Pepper as needed
Lemon Juice as needed
Oil 1 tsp
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.
