    Soups

    Chettu soup:

    hello friends,
    wondering about the name mentioned?. This is a normal and very simple dhal soup. As rainy season started, evenings are warmed with varieties of soups, and so i started this thread and friends let us share various soup varieties here. This recipe i got from Ananda vikatan.

    Chettu soup:
    vegetables (any veggie like carrot , cabbage, beans, radish etc) - finely chopped - 1 cup
    tomato - 1
    green chillies - 2
    Moong dal - 1/2 cup
    turmeric - a pinch
    garlic - 5 flakes
    saunf - 1/2 tsp
    kal pasi - 1
    cloves -2
    ghee - 1 tsp.
    salt to taste

    Method:
    cook moong dal, vegetables, turmeric and a handful of coriander , salt with a cup of water in a pressure cooker. Mash the contents well and keep aside.
    Heat ghee in a kadai, add saunf, curry leaves, cloves , garlic, kalpasi and saute till brown and add this to the mashed content. Drain it well . garnish with finely chopped coriander. Serve hot with a drop of lemon juice added.
    Try this for a different taste of dhal soup.

    regards
    karthiga.
