    When you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and try to do some research and cook from other cuisines, you realize that there are a lot of similarities in cuisines around the world. This week for the FoodirMondayBloghop, Sujata who blogs at pepperonpizza suggested that we cook on Levantine cuisine. She is also known as the Levantine queen as you can see on her space the recent posts are on this cuisine. There are many wonderful recipes when you check on this cuisine. The point was to zero in on a dish which would suit our taste palate and diet chart too. Some work on this and I decided to make Shorbet Adas. Looks like a fancy name, is it not?. Well, it is basically a lentil soup. Its texture and taste are also like our dal shorba. The star ingredient of this lentil soup is red lentils or masoor dal. So having decided that the I will be cooking the lentil soup, next was to use my new entry in my kitchen-Nutripot which is an instapot.

    Shorbet Adas in a nutripot

    Having decided on the recipe, the next jump was to use a new kitchen machine-the nutripot/instapot. Read the manual a couple of times-sorry asked hubby to read:). Then it was easy to assemble and to start using it. I liked that it made no noise like our pressure cooker. You can dump everything into it, switch on the particular more you want and then go on with your chores while it is getting cooked. The negatives of using this, I am not sure as yet, as I have cooked only this till now. One thing that did strike me was the minimum quantity that can be cooked. In my small pressure cooker I can cook up to 1/2 cup of pulao too but here it might not be possible.

    Anyway going ahead with the recipe, first, I switched it on to saute more. Sauteed the vegetables, Then added the dal and water and spices and switched it on in the soup mode. Later with a hand blender blended everything to get a very rich, delicious nourishing red lentil soup- Shorbet Adas

    Thank you, Sujata for the lovely theme.

    The soup bowl looks so tempting and perfect for the super cold weather here. We love masoor dal and this one looks another perfect one to give a try in my Instant Pot.

    Masoor Dal as an ingredient is something I truly adore and totally needs more emphasis I feel. It is the best for soups, makes it quite filling and light on stomach too unlike Tur Dal. The added vegetables and spices only make this soup more tempting, ideal for an early dinner treat option.

    Shorbet Adas. What a lovely name, calling out the mysteries of the Levant. Ok, Masoor dal doesn’t sound so romantic, but the recipe is robust and sounds both easy to make and nutritious.
