A modified version of the traditional mulligatawny soup, this recipe features a medley of flavours that your taste-buds will delightedly dive into! what is more, it is also convenient to make as you can make the masala beforehand. Plus, the masala is very versatile, and can be added to dals and subzis too. Not to forget the health angle – tomatoes are rich in folic acid and vitamin c while toovar dal, though just added in a small quantity to impart thickness to the soup, adds to the nutritive value and also makes the soup wholesome and filling! relish it hot with lots of coriander.
