Moong Dal and Tomato Soup

I am trying these days to make dinner as light as possible, so most days it is either salad or soup. Today it was moong dal and tomato soup. Here is the recipe…


400 grams tomatoes,
½ cup moong dal,
3-4 cups of water,
Salt to taste,
1 ½ tsps of olive oil,
½ a small onion (chopped)
½ cup skimmed milk,              
Pepper crushed as per taste,
A pinch of sugar


Pressure cook the tomatoes with the moong dal and water. Let cool. Blend and strain.

Heat the olive oil and add the chopped onion, sauté till it softens. Now pour in the strained soup and let it boil for 2 minutes. Add the sugar, salt to taste, crushed pepper and skimmed milk. Boil for one more minute. Serve hot or warm as per preference.
