Mung bean soup is one of my all time favourite soups. It is scrumptious, soothing, easy to digest and perfectly warming for cold winter days. Mung bean soup is the perfect meal for the time when you are not very hungry, but just in the mood for a hot bowl of good soup. Also, it is the best recipe when you are down with cold, flu or fever.
Green un-husked mung beans (with their outer skins intact) are light and easy to digest. The spices and ghee aid in igniting the digestive fire and add tons of flavor.
Interestingly this recipe has its origin in the Charak Samhita, one of the oldest treatise of Ayurveda written in 3000 B.C.
