drumstick soup

No oil/butter/milk is used here.


Drumstick                          3

Moong dal                          ½ cup

Tomato                                1 (big)

Pepper powder               1 spoon

Salt                                         as per taste

Jeera powder                   ½ spoon

Hing                                       very small pinch

Turmeric powder           small pinch (optional-for colour)

Coriander leaves           as per your taste.


  • Cook  moong dal very well.
  • Cut drumstick into long pieces.
  • Cook drumstick and tomato ( I cooked both together in oven for 6 minutes).
  • Peel off skin of tomato.
  • Take out the flesh of drumstick.
  • Blend  cooked dal, flesh of tomato and drumstick (in mixie, if you want a clear smooth soup, mash and mix if you like to have small pieces while serving).
  • Boil the mixture with required water for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add all powders, mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

I learnt this soup last week, from a TV show, tried, it was very, very tasty.  No need to explain how healthy it is.  Wanted to share with all, who have not watched that show.
