Come winter and we crave food that is warm, soothing and loaded with flavours. In fact, there's something about the season that takes us on a bingeing spree. From kadak masala chai to roasted meat and more, we indulge in it all, without any diet thoughts in mind. Another popular winter delicacy is shorba. Now, you must be wondering what shorba is. Also referred to as chorba, it is a hot stew relished across the Asian sub-continent. Traditionally, it is prepared with simmering meat in water infused with aromatic herbs and spices. But over the years, with its increasing popularity, people have started giving this classic dish a vegetarian makeover too. Today, you will get lemon-ginger shorba, corn shorba, badam shorba and more.
Another such veg shorba variant that tugged at our heartstrings is tamatar shorba. Made with ripe and juicy tomatoes and a pool of spices and herbs, this dish makes for a perfect appetizer on a chilly winter evening. You can also pair it with some bread and enjoy a light and wholesome dinner on a hectic weekday. So, without further ado, let's check out the recipe.
