Afghani Dall Soup ~ Afghanistan Recipes

Aghanistan Recipes

Soups are always very comforting in cold weather, I love to have soups with bread and here is afghani variety soup you should try to go with Uzbaki bread . Afghani cuisines resembles more like an Indian cuisine with different names  and techniques  they same dish exist all over the world . We normally have dals with Rice but in afghan dalls are had as a soup with breads. I tried this simple yellow dal and had it like a soup with bread and it was like giving a different way of eating the same usual dal we make . This a very simple cost efficient  soup with all the comforting goodness in it. Lets move to the recipe of making lentil soup the afghani way.
