Split Black Urad & Butternut Squash Soup

This lovely soup is pretty easy and quick to make (except for the cooking time, to be honest!) and also very very tasty!


Ingredients (6 servings)

250 grams of Split Black Urad

100 grams of Pearl Barley

1 medium Butternut Squash (cubed)

2 medium Potatoes (cubed)

1 big Red Onion (roughly chopped)

2-3 gloves of Garlic (cut in half)

1 branch of Rosemary

1 ts of Onion Powder 

1/2 ts of Nutmeg Powder

3 tbs of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tbs of Vegetable Bouillon Powder

2 tbs of Tomato Paste

1 tbs of Mixed Herbes

Hot Water

Salt & Pepper to taste


Simply combine all the ingredients in a pot and casserole it al low heat for around 1 hour (until both the split black urad, the barley and the butternut squash became tender), adding a cup of hot water every 5 or 10 mins. 

Serve hot or at room temperature.

For an extra flavour add some smoked paprika to taste.

Enjoy 🙂
