tomato shorba recipetomato shorba recipe | tamatar shorba | tamatar dhania ka shorba with detailed photo and video recipe. soup recipes are generally the most underrated recipes in indian cuisine. there are many traditional and modern unique recipes but does not get the attention and visibility like other recipes. one such traditional and ancient soup recipes are tomato shorba recipe inherited from the persian cuisine.

the word shorba is loaned word from persian language which literally means as thick spicy soup. i suspect, by now you may have this confusion why it is referred to as tomato shorba and not a tomato soup. or perhaps what is the difference between these 2 recipes? well to answer this question i would directly refer to the texture of this soup, which is slightly thinner and less creamy as in normal tomato soup. moreover, the shorba recipes are spicier and are generally made with minced meat or choice of veggies. in this case, ripe tomatoes are used with garlic and coriander leaves. it is an ideal medicine for common cold and indigestion problems and recommended to be served just before the meal.

some tips, suggestions and variations to this flavoured tomato shorba recipe. firstly, the tomatoes have to be ripe and i do not recommend to use the green coloured tomatoes. ripe tomatoes add the sour and sweet taste to the soup. secondly, you can add finely chopped carrot while cooking the tomatoes. adding carrots would increase the thickness and texture of this soup. at the same time, it may also increase the sweetness of this soup. lastly, the shorba soup is generally served before the meal as a starter or appetizer. but it can also be served as condiment or side dish to rice recipes like pulao and biryani.
