This is quite an unusual soup, because Masoor dhal has been used here, and Masoor Dhal is rich in protein and zinc, the Lycopene-rich tomatoes are there to impart the beautiful color and garlic and onions do their job of enhancing the aroma and flavor. This is an one-pot soup, very easy, all the ingredients will be there in our kitchen.
A very healthy bowl of beautiful color and nutrients....
Hot soup served with Hung curd sandwiches...

Olive oil - 2 tsps
Chopped garlic - 2 tsps
