Lemon Dal (Lemon Lentil Soup)

Today I just made a super fast recipe which can be done in just 15 mts. I thought it is a best idea to share with you all. Here you go Lemon Dal.


1 cup of Dal
1 Lemon
2 green chilies
Salt to taste
pinch of turmeric powder

For seasoning/popu/tadka:

1tsp of oil
1/2tsp of mustard seeds
1 red chily
curry leaves
pinch of hing
1/2 tsp of cumin seeds/jeera


Cook dal in cooker. Heat a pan/vessel add popu items. Once the mustard seeds starts spluttering add the dal,pinch of turmeric powder,Salt and little bit of water. Keep it for 5-6 mts till the dal/lentils is boiled and turn off the heat. Add lemon juice to the dal after 5-6 mts. and mix it.

Note: Always lemon juice should be added once the mixture is little cold. If the lemon juice is added when it is too hot, dal can become bitter.

Garnish with coriander leaves.(optional)
