Toor Dal & Carrot Soup with Cheese topping | Quick Kid friendly meal

Today’s post is a quick to make and kid-friendly soup with Toor
Dal and Carrots. Simply earthy , and teamed with garlic bread, it makes for a
yummy supper or evening snack. It requires very few ingredients and can be made
either in the soup pot or the pressure cooker. I prefer the latter method as
its quicker and gives an uniform consistency. Last two days of BM with Toor Dal
saw Sambhar Saadam (One Pot Meal) and Thogari Nuchinunde (Steamed lentil
savoury snack). Linking this to Blogging Marathon and also to PJ who is hosting
