Rice and lentil soup

10 days of ramzan have already passed by.. but not a day without this soup. Right after breaking the fast the soup is served either with samosa’s or vada’s . Today i’m  going to make vada to go with the soup. It makes an awesome combination. The soup is so comforting! Everyone must try!

Rice and lentil soup:

  • 5 tbsp rice rawa
  • 3 tbsp moong dal
  • Little coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 or 2 green chilli slit (only if you like )
  • ½ tsp Ginger garlic paste

  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp oil
