Tomato Shorba recipe with step by step photos – easy and light tomato soup spiced with Indian spices.

tomato shorba recipe

Sharing one more soup recipe. Tomato Shorba is a simple as well as a quick recipe and gets done within 20 to 25 minutes. It is minimally spiced, light and goes very well as a starter soup. I have also shared the Recipe of makai ka shorba.

To make tomato shorba or any tomato soup, always use tomatoes which are ripe and not too sour. If the tomatoes are too sour, then the shorba will also become sour. In this recipe we are not using any cream, so it is best to use tomatoes which are ripe, red and sweet. coriander leaves are added in a good amount in this recipe. Thereby taking this tomato dhaniya shorba to another level.

You can even have this tomato ka shorba accompany a veg pulao, cashew pulao or jeera rice. Or just have it plain in a cold weather.
