  • 1/4 Cup Split Red Lentils (Masoor Dal)
  • 2 Tablespoon Broken Wheat (Daliya)
  • 5 Cashewnuts
  • 1 Medium Sized Red Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Carrot, Chopped
  • 1 Tomato, Chopped
  • 1/2 of a Medium Sized Potato, Diced
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar (optional)
  • 2 Sprigs Mint Leaves
  • 1/2 inch piece ginger, peeled
  • 2 Cups Water

To Serve

  • 2 Sprigs Mint Leaves, Chopped
  • 4 Lemon Wedges


  1. Add in all the ingredients in a pressure cooker and cook on medium flame for 5 whistles. It will take about 5-6 minutes. Switch off the flame and allow the pressure from the cooker to release naturally.
  2. Blend the soup. Do not blend the soup to a fine paste. Grind to a slightly coarse consistency so there is texture in every bite. Add little hot water to thin the soup to a consistency that you may like. Turkish Red Lentil Soup is ready.
  3. Garnish with mint leaves. Serve with bread and lemon wedges. Squeeze the lemon just before serving.
