Recipe - Moong dal and Masoor dal

Green gram and red lentil soup


Plain dals can be made with different types of lentils. This particular soup has a distinct flavor to it. I like the flavor of this soup better than just the simple moong dal or just masoor dal.


  • Moong dal (green gram with or without skin)- 1/2 cup
  • Masoor dal (red lentil) - 1/2 cup
  • Coriander powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt - 3/4 teaspoon
  • Turmeric - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Paprika - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Butter - 1 tablespoon
  • Water - 3cups (to cook)


Wash moong dal and masoor dal, add 3 cups of water, salt, coriander powder, turmeric powder, paprika and butter. Pressure cook it for 2 whistles.

Let the pressure release and add one cup of hot water to bring it to the desired consistency. Serve hot as a soup or add seasoning to the soup with cumin seeds and onions and serve it with rice or roti.

Preparation time: 10 - 15 minutes
# Servings - 4
