Easy Lentil Soup Recipe for a Quick Weight Gain:-

Weight Gain Special Lentil Soup:-

Lentils are rich in both protein and carbohydrates. About half a cup (100 gms) of lentils has 116 calories in it. They are also high in fiber.So I thought it would be a great option if I include it in my diet. Hence I tried a soup recipe which could be easily included in my regular diet. 

Ingredients for Easy Weight Gaining Lentil Soup:-

Weight Gain special soup recipe Lentil soup

1. Lentil - I used the Yellow Variety- 1 cup
2. Water- 3 cups and more 
3. Cumin seeds-1 tsp
4. Onion- 1 chopped
5. Tomatoes- 1/2 chopped
6. Pepper and Salt to taste
7. Oil- 2 tsp

Method of Preparing this Easy Weight Gaining Lentil Soup:- 


Into a pressure cooker, add the washed, lentil, water, salt, cumin, onion and tomatoes and cook until 2 whistles.

Wait for the pressure to subside before you open up the cooker. Using a ladle or a handheld blender bring the lentil into a fine paste. Add more water if required, to bring it to a soup like consistency. 

Alternatively, if you do not own a handheld blender you can wait for the mixture to cool down before you move it to a blender and blend it out. 

Once you have added sufficient amount of water, add the pepper powder and salt (if necessary) and bring it to a boil on a medium-low flame. Let the pepper leave its flavors to our soup. Garnish with cilantro and serve :) 

You can also freeze your soup for the 2-3 days.

Indian Breakfast Menu Ideas for Weight Gain Diet

When I decided to go for a weight gain plan, I checked out the Indian diet plans as well. But there wasn’t a comprehensive ‘Indian’ diet. So I thought I would prepare one for myself. I drafted this one after going into the details of calories and other nutritional facts. This can act as a guideline for the weight gainers to decide their diet. So these are the seven days breakfast ideas.

Chickpea Salad for Weight Gainers

Chickpeas are very rich in calories. It is said that 100 grams of chickpeas contain approximately 364 calories. This is our special recipe which we prepare during Ramadan Days. It tastes yummy and it is very easy to prepare once you have the cooked chickpeas. You can also use the canned chickpeas which we usually use for preparing hummus. I am planning to have it every other day.
