Very flavorful and hearty - definitely a winner! I didn't add salt because the broth had plenty. Also I added some extra broth because it got very thick.
This is delicious and healthy. I would love to serve this at our next Indian cook fest. This is also a great lunch soup with a slice of wholesome bread. Thanks, Debbie R! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap.
Wow - this packs a whole lot of flavor for such an easy-to-make soup! I made this exactly as posted, except I used my immersion blender to puree half the soup in the pot. I would definitely encourage adding the thinned yogurt, jalapeno , and lime because they each add a unique facet of flavor. I tasted some soup with and without them, and even though the soup is delicious on its own, and really takes it up a notch by using those ingredients. A wonderful soup that I will most certainly make again! Made for ZWT 8.
Great way to use up swiss chard. Both DH, who is Indian, and I really liked this. I substituted sambhar powder for the curry powder and cayenne, but it would taste similar if you used the ingredients called for. The lemon really gives it a nice tang. I love cooking the lentils with the chard, and will use that technique again. I used masoor dal for the red dal. I will make this again. Note that the recipe makes lots.
