You can either consume red lentil with rice or enjoy it as a soup. I love making soup when I don’t have time to cook. It takes no time to prepare and tastes yum with some drizzled ghee and garnished with freshly chopped coriander.
Red lentil soup is a fantastic recipe to try if you want to feel light and healthy. It is a perfect dinner recipe one can have.
Lentils have the following benefits:
- Improves vision
- Good for heart health
- Provides glowing skin
- Balances high sugar levels
- Lowers the high cholesterol levels
As per Ayurveda, red lentil is more suitable for Pitta and Kapha body type people. Due to its dry quality, it may aggravate Vata dosha if consumed in excessive quantity. So, if you are a Vata person or suffering from any Vata imbalance, avoid consuming red lentil in excess.
Variations in the recipe according to your body type:
Vata person: Eat once or twice a week only. Add a little more ghee over the recipe.
Pitta person: Avoid adding garlic.
Kapha person: Add black pepper and a slice of grated ginger in the recipe while boiling it.
