Addas/Sudanese Red Lentil Soup/Sudanese Addas

Soup, this dish have their own place in our daily meal once the weather starts too cold or rainy. We are in fall season and obviously the weather keeps on changing everyday drastically. Recently we had a super chilled morning with a super hot sunny evening. Yes you heard me rite, we dont even know how to dress ourselves. Obviously i couldnt keep my summer dresses away as Sun god is showing his head once a while. However the weather will get chilled progessively as we are in Autumn. Soups are definitely a satisfying and comforting meal to keep ourselves warm. I love dishing out soups as they are quick, nutritious, healthy and just prefect to please anyone's tastebuds quickly. And my today's post is definitely a fabulous soup to give a try without any fail. This gluten free, vegan Red lentils soup is a hearty and healthy soup to prepare at home without any hesitation as this soup calls for simple and easily available ingredients.

Addas, Sudanese Lentils Soup


Addas is a Arabic word which means soup. And this Sudanese Addas is definitely a healthy soup to enjoy with some slices of bread for either breakfast or for lunch. Red lentils are the prominent ingredients for making this Sudanese soup which is well known as Masoor dal in India. Masoor dal is a tremendous dal which is highly rich in protein and low in fat. This soup can be prepared quickly in pressure cooker easily than cooking the dal in large pot. However traditional way of making this soup calls for a thick bottomed large pan for cooking the dal. However i opted for pressure cooker and this soup gets ready in less time when compared to the traditional way.Am running this week's blogging marathon with Pick A Letter, 3 Countries, and i picked 'S' hence am posting this soup dish from Sudan.
