This is one of our traditional family recipe, i had not tasted this soup anywhere else. This soup is served along with hot idlys and crispy dosas. I also like eating this soup with steamed rice. This soup will be mild and great in taste. This soup is perfect for all ages. Its great food for the toddlers too. When feeding the toddlers you need to mash the steamed rice very well and add this soup generously to the rice and feed them.
Toor dal/ Split pigeon peas-1cup( washed and soaked for 1/2 hour)
Tomatoe-100gms( finely chopped)
Onion small-1( finely chopped)
Red chilly powder-1/2tsp
Salt to taste
Pressure cook the toor dal and tomatoes for 15 mins. Once the toor dal is well done, allow to cool and mash well with lentil masher. Strain the juice of the mashed toor dal with help of fine hole strainer. Add water to the toor dal residue and strain again, follow this step again and again till you get enough juice form the toor dal. Throw away the toordal residue since all the nutrients has been extracted through the juice. Collect this lentil juice in a deep vessel, add red chilly powder, turmeric powder, pepper powder and salt. Place the vessel on heat and bring to boil, simmer the soup for 5 mins. In the meantime heat a tadka pan and add ghee, when hot add the vadagam and onions, fry for few seconds. Add the onion tempering to the simmering soup. Turn off the heat and Serve this hot soup with Idly, Dosas or Steamed rice.
