This unusual soup has been prepared from masoor dal, which is known for being rich in protein and zinc. Tomatoes give it a lovely red tinge whereas onions and garlic impart an enticing aroma. I’ve blended this soup to give it a nice creamy texture without actually adding cream! It’s a great soup, which fills you up before the meal so that you do not binge on other high-calorie foods.

I had added 1 cup of bottle guard while making the soup (because it was lying in the refridgerator). The soup tasted really great. Can we use the bottle guard with the peel on for making soup? I think it will provide additional nutrients and fibre. Please share your view.
