Health Benefits: Green leaves are rich in iron and fiber contents. Including green leaves in diet helps to improve digestive system health and keeps body fit. They supply almost no calories and hence are good choice for reducing weight.

Green leaves have long been used as a milk-boosting food. This light, flavorful soup made with fresh fenugreek or other edible leaves and dal water (supernatant of boiled pulses) not only improves breast milk but aids digestion and provides appropriate nutrition as well.


  1. Fenugreek/ spinach or any other green leaves – 1 cup
  2. Onion finely chopped – 1/2 cup
  3. Ripe tomato (finely chopped) – 1
  4. Garlic cloves (minced) – 3-4
  5. Dal water (supernatant of boiled pulses) – 2 cups
  6. Salt and pepper powder – to taste
  7. Oil – 1 teaspoon

Total quantity: 2 cups (1 serving)


Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onion, garlic and sauté until onions turn translucent, add the tomatoes, and cook for a few more minutes. Now add cleaned and chopped green leaves and sauté until they soften, then add 2 cups of diluted dal water, salt, and simmer for 15 minutes. Blend half of the quantity and then add this to the rest of the soup and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add pepper powder to taste.
