Veggies & Dal Soup / Soup Series

In our Soup Series Event, me and my friend Sujitha had so far completed 5 different varieties of soups. And in that array, sharing my today's healthy and nutritious soup which is prepared using 4 varieties of vegetables and 3 varieties of protein rich dal. This yummy soup is a perfect healthy breakfast option when served with a Toasted bread. In this recipe, I have strained the soup after blending according to my family member's taste. But serving as such without straining the soup also increases the nutritious fact.
