Ingredients


For The Moong Dal Purée
3 tbsp yellow moong dal (split yellow gram)
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup carrot cubes

Other Ingredients
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 tsp chopped garlic (lehsun)
2 tbsp chopped celery (ajmoda)
2 tbsp cooked barley (jau)
1/2 tbsp cornflour
2 tsp oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper (kalimirch) powder ) to taste

Method
For the moong dal purée

  1. Wash and soak moong dal for few hours.
  2. Drain, add 2 cups of water, onions and carrots and pressure cook for 1 to 2 whistles.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  4. Allow it to cool and blend in a mixer to a smooth puree.

How to proceed

  1. Heat the oil in non-stick pan and sauté the onions, garlic and celery for 1 minute.
  2. Add the moong dal purée and bring to boil. Simmer for 3 to 4 minutes and stir in the cooked pearl barley, salt and pepper.
  3. Mix the corn flour with ¼ cup of water and add to the soup.
  4. Simmer for another 3 to 4 minutes. Serve hot.

Handy tips:

  1. Add salt while pressure cooking the barley.
  2. Pearl barley is easily available at local chemists. Wash it thoroughly and cook in boiling water like rice.
  3. The water in which barley is cooked is nutritious and rich in antioxidants that help to fight diseases.
  4. It can be used for kneading dough or added to buttermilk or soups.

Nutritious yellow moong dal is pressure cooked to form a lovely brownish healthy soup. Love the addition of barley which soaks in the flavor and gives a nice mouth feel.
