I had a bowl of this for lunch today alongwith 2 slices of brown bread. I felt this is a good vegetarian dal soup for someone who is counting calories and watching their weight. Thought I'd share it at once. It's got the flavour of curry leaves and corriander leaves. I really liked it. It was so easy to put together and came out wonderful.
