Yamuna Devi's Lord Krishna's Cuisine is a great place to start if you are looking for simple but stunning soup recipes. I have tried most of the soups in her dal soup section, and not only are the majority of them very easy to make, they are absolutely delicious besides. Yamuna Devi says this is her favorite recipe for urad dal, although I'm not sure I can choose between this elegant and fragrant fennel-flavored urad dal soup or her equally tasty and beautiful urad dal with tomato soup. Alas, I guess I must continue to make both soups as I don't think I will ever make up my mind.
On the menu with:
Basmati Rice with Ginger-Seasoned Yogurt
|Fennel-Flavored Urad Dal Soup (Sada Urad Dal)|
