Red Lentil Soup( Musur Dal):

Red Lentil Soup

Red Lentil Soup

Often I make this Soup for a light Lunch.This recipe of Red Lentil is very light to digest.I Serve this with rice and Potato fry.My Kids love to eat this .This Soup is great as a main meal rather than as a side dish like the more traditional Indian dhal.lentils have the third-highest level of protein, by weight, of any legume or nut, after soybeans and hemp. Proteins include the essential amino acids isoleucine and lysine.

They are also a good source of potassium, calcium, zinc, niacin and vitamin K, but are particularly rich in dietary fiber, lean protein, folate and iron.


1 cup of red lentil
4 cups of water
2 tbsp coriander leaf
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sunflower oil
2 tbsp onion chopped
1 green chili
1 red chili
1 tsp cumin seed


Use Pressure cooker for boil the lentil.For boiling use 2 cups of water.Add remaining water to the boiled lentil.Mix salt ,turmeric and green chili in the dhal. Boil it for 10 minutes.

In another skillet heat oil .Add red chili,cumin and onion to oil.Saute for 5 minutes.Pour the fried spiced and oil to the dhal.

Spread  with Coriander leaf on the top of dhal. Serve it with hot rice.
