Who doesn’t love the tangy, appetizing flavour and creamy mouth-feel of Tomato Soup? Here is a variant with a desi touch, where the tomatoes are blended with cooked moong dal, to improve the texture and balance the flavour too.


  • 2 cups roughly chopped tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup yellow moong dal (split yellow gram)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • salt and to taste
  • bread croutons


1.Combine the tomatoes, yellow moong dal and 1½ cups of water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook for 3 whistles.

2.Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Cool slightly and blend in a mixer till smooth. Keep aside.

3.Heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.

4.Add the tomato-dal mixture, ½ cup of water, sugar and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally.

5.Switch off the flame, add the pepper and mix well.

Serve hot with bread croutons.
