Cracked wheat (daliya) and Vegetable Soup

I am still continuing the healthy diet/weight loss recipes series this week. Trying to discover new ways to cut those excess calories from a meal while still providing finger-licking nourishment has been challenging. This week I came up with a delicious soup with the goodness of carrots, sweet potato, tomatoes and cracked wheat. Blame it on the balmy weather of Bangalore but I am craving for loads of soup these days !
