Ayurvedic Moong Dal Soup (Yellow Lentil Soup)


  • 1 cup yellow moong dal (split yellow lentils)
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon asafoetida (hing)
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly chopped cilantro leaves for garnish


  • Rinse the moong dal thoroughly under running water until the water runs clear.
  • In a large saucepan, add the rinsed moong dal and water.
  • Bring it to a boil over medium heat.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let the dal simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until it becomes soft and mushy. Stir occasionally and skim off any foam that forms on the surface.
  • While the dal is cooking, heat ghee in a separate pan over medium heat.
  • Add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add grated ginger, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, and asafoetida. Sauté for a minute until the spices release their aroma.
  • Add chopped tomato, carrot, and zucchini to the pan. Sauté for a few minutes until the vegetables become tender.
  • Transfer the cooked dal to the pan with the sautéed vegetables. Mix well.
  • Add vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let the soup simmer for another 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  • Season with salt to taste. You can also add Ayur Healthcare’s special Ayurvedic spice blend for an extra touch of flavor (optional).
