Kuskulu Mercimel Çorbası - Turkish Red Lentil Soup With Couscous

U may think am in cooking up Turkish foods almost everyday, u rnt wrong yep even our sterday's dinner was this Turkish red lentil soup cooked along with couscous, i couldnt stop myself to cook up some beautiful dishes from Turkish cuisine, this soup with red lentils and couscous was really filling, nourishing and very tasty soup when served along with toasted bread slices.

We loved having this warm red lentil soup with couscous for our dinner and we enjoyed having this filling soup along with toasted cream cheese sandwich, both together turned out our dinner prefectly..I found this delicious and hearty soup here and the click itself tempts me a lot to try out,

Turkish Red Lentils Soup With Couscous

1/2cup Couscous
1no Carrot (diced)
1tsp Paprika powder
2tbsp Butter
Salt

Heat the vegetable stock in a pressure cooker, once it starts boiling add the red lentils and diced carrots and cook until the veggies and lentils get well cooked..add the couscous and cook for another 10minutes, put off the stove and add salt..

Heat the butter in a pan, add the paprika and let it sizzle for few seconds..While serving the soup in bowls,pour the butter and paprika on the top of the soup and serve immediately...
