Similar to Bombay Curry Soup, this soup can also be had during any season. But this is not a filler soup but an appetizer.

Masoor Dal - 1 cup
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Mint Leaves - 1/2 cup
Onion - 2
Tomato - 2
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Green chillies - 2 nos
Garlic - 8 pods
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tbsp
Saunf - 1/2 tsp

Cut onion and tomato into fine pieces. chop coriander leaves, mint leaves too finely. Heat ghee in a pressure pan add mustard seeds and when they splutter add cumin seeds, saunf and saute for a few mins. Slit the green chillies, crush the garlic, chop the ginger finely and add it to the pan. Add onions, tomato and saute well again. Add masoor dal and 2 cups of water to it and pressure cook it for about 3 to 4 whistles. When cool mash it thoroughly. If it is thick add another cup of water and serve hot. This is a wholesome soup for a cold evening.
