This recipe is equally suitable for all three dosha types.


For 4 persons, preparation time about 50 minutes
Swelling time: Overnight


  • 200 g dried mung beans
  • 1 fresh green chili pepper
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp whole cumin seeds

Now open the pot, add all the spices and put it back on the stove. Roast everything lightly.

Then add the hot water and the chili pepper and beans and simmer the whole thing open for about 40 minutes. Finally, add salt to taste.

  • 1/2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 – 3 tbsp. sweet cream
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


Clean, peel and dice the carrots. Wash and coarsely chop the fresh coriander. Heat the ghee in a pot and roast the carrots for about 4 minutes. Add the hot water, the spices and the coriander and cook for about 20 minutes. Finely puree the soup and stir in the cream. Season to taste with a little salt.
