Light & Nourishing Moong Dal Soup to Balance Your Dosha

Moong dal calms Vata and Pitta, mainly because of its sweet and cooling texture. This easily digestible soup promotes strength and is an excellent source of nutrition. It’s also high in proteins and rich in dietary fiber. By itself, moong dal is dry and light, which could potentially aggravate vata dosha. However, the seasonings counterbalance the properties of moong dal and end up balancing all the doshas.
