Winters are knocking at the door and soups are back in town. Give me a piping hot bowl of soup with some oven fresh bread and I need nothing else for dinner. Here is a simple and nutritious carrot soup. No oil and gets made in a jiffy.

You need

3-4 carrots, cut into chunks
2 medium sized tomatoes, quartered
1 small onion, quartered
4 cloves of garlic
1 bay leaf
2 Tbsp moong dal/ husked split green lentils (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
ΒΌ tsp sugar
1 cup water
For the topping you may use some onion cut into rings and browed in some olive oil, freshly chopped coriander/cilantro, some fresh cream or bread croutons.

Pressure cook all the ingredients with a cup of water. Cool, grind and strain. Give it a boil and serve hot topped with some caramelised onion and some fresh coriander chopped fine. Top with some cream or malai if desired. We had it with some freshly baked whole wheat bread.
