Horsegram & Coconut Milk Soup

After a week, yesterday here in Paris the temperature went too down and again the chilled weather started here, i was quite lazy to prepare foods and prepared a simple soup with brown horsegram which we get easily here...This soup goes for simple ingredients and i used some left over coconut milk to the soup to enhance the flavour..This horsegram soup was really nourishing, healthy and filling, best soup for peoples who were in diet..Yes, if u r dieting no need to say that horsegram brings u many vitamins u need for dieting and will help u very much for ur dieting, its recommanded to take atleast twice or thrice even if u rnt dieting..Needless to say how healthy and comforting is this soup and this soups tastes fantastic for a chilled evening dinner..Am trying to send this healthy soup again to Usha's Healthy Inspiration Event-Soups..



2cups Horsegrams (i used the brown lentils)
1no Onion (chopped)
3nos Garlic cloves
1cup Thick Coconut milk
2tsp Olive oil
Salt
Pepper powder

Soak the horsegram lentils for atleast 2 hours...strain the soaked water and cook them with 5cups of water in a large sauce pan, once they get well cooked put off the stove and keep aside..

Heat the olive oil and saute the chopped onions and crushed garlic until they turns brown, add the coconut milk to the veggies and bring them to boil with enough salt and pepper..add this to the already cooked horsegrams and bring them boil and serve immediately..

Serve warm, once this soup get cooled, its turn immediately thick, so its better to serve immediately..enjoy with toasted bread..
