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 low-calorie appetizer, which fills you up before the meal so that you do not binge on other high-calorie foods.
