Whole Greengram & Veggies Soup

Recently i saw this whole greengram soup in a TV cooking program and got hooked to the simplicity of this delicious soup which is quite a filling, nutritious, healthy and hearty soup to overcome the chilled cold weather...I prepared the next day itself  for our dinner and served with some toasted whole wheat bread toasts which turned out  our dinner quite prefect and filling..This soup needs really very less time to cook if the whole green grams soaked for overnite..Protein packed soup for a healthy evening dinner or as simple starter for lunch...Try out friends u will definitely love this delicious soup...This soup is diet friendly soup as we know that moongdal are quite rich in fibres..Am sending this healthy soups to Usha's Healthy Inspirations Event-Soups..



2cups Whole green gram (green moongdal)
1no Onion(chopped)
3nos Garlic cloves (minced)
1cup Any sort of  cubed veggies (carrots, zucchinis,potatoes,leeks pieces)
1/2tsp White pepper powder
2tsp Parsley leaves (chopped)
1tsp Chilli sauce
Salt
1tsp Olive oil

Soak the whole green gram overnite or atleast 6hours..Heat the olive oil, saute the chopped onions & minced garlic cloves until the onions turns transculent and keep aside...Take the soaked green grams with enough water in a pressure cooker and add the sauteed onions& garlic cloves, chopped veggies with enough salt and cook upto 3whistles..once the steam get released, add the white pepper powder,chopped parsley leaves and chilli sauce, cook everything in simmer for few minutes by smashing slightly the cooked green grams..
