Weight Gain Special Lentil Soup:-

Does it work when you use lentil for weight gain? 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:-

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. This is how I prepare my lentils for weight gain. Do try it for yourselves and let me know in the comments.
