Mixed Dal Curry – Mixed Lentil Soup

This is a protein packed lentil soup with no oil. This is a quick and simple recipe. And this is suitable for the 28 Day Weight Loss and Detox Program. I have used four types of lentils (dals) in this recipe. Lentils are a good source of protein and fiber along with folate, vitamin B and minerals. Red (or pink) lentils contain a lower concentration of fiber than green lentils (11% rather than 31%). I have added whole masoor dal, green split pea, split pigeon peas and channa dal (bengal gram) along with spinach. This is a healthy and tasty dal or soup. You can serve it with brown rice or white rice or roti along with a salad. Here you go…
Preparation time: 30 minutes
No. of servings: 5 to 6
Spice level: 3 out of 5
Whole Masoor dal – 1/4 cup
Split green peas – 1/2 cup
Toor dal – 1/4 cup
Channa dal – 1/4 cup
Spinach – a big bunch
Chopped onion – 1/4 cup
Tomato – 1
Sambar powder – 1 tbsp
Green chili – 1
Red chili powder – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
Chopped ginger – 1 tsp
Chopped garlic – 1 tsp
Fresh lime juice – 1 tbsp
Chopped cilantro for garnishing
Vegetable broth – 2 and 1/2 cups (can substitute with water)
Salt to taste

Method of Preparation:
Wash and soak the lentils or dals for half a hour. It reduces the cooking time and it is optional.
Clean and roughly chop spinach.
In a pressure cooker add soaked lentils, turmeric powder, chili powder, sambar powder, green chili, salt, chopped onion and tomato, ginger and garlic, spinach and finally vegetable broth. You can also use a cooker vessel instead of directly cooking it in a pressure cooker.
Vegetable broth gives it a nice flavor. But if don’t have it in your pantry, you can substitute it with water.
Give it a stir and pressure cook for 4 whistles.
Turn off the stove and let the pressure go down.
Open the cooker and give it a nice stir. Dal curry is ready.
Add lime juice and garnish with chopped cilantro.
If there is excess water, just boil the curry for a few minutes till i becomes thick. Or if the curry is too thick, add some more broth or water and boil till it reaches the required consistency.
