Tomato Shorba is an Indian soup ideal for cold winter nights. It is light, mildly spicy and good for relief from cold and cough.

Winter calls for warm drinks, nothing seems better than soups for me. It is filling and I usually have a menu sorted for dinner with soup and a snack.

What is Shorba?

Shorba is Indian soup which is prepared using various spices. It is ideal to serve as a warm drink before dinner.  It is a Persian term meaning salty stew. Shorba is also called as Chorba, Shurpa, Sorpa. It is a Mughlai dish and has vegetarian version as Tomato Shorba.

Winter Warmers:

Make sure you give all these winter warmers to your children,  hot chocolate milk, badam milk, I have shared a few soup recipes earlier. This healthy tomato soup is what I mostly prepare for my family. It has the goodness of other vegetables in it. Vegetable Manchow Soup is the favourite of most children.

About the event:

Sending this post to #WinterWarmersatHW. It is a fortnightly event where we work on a theme suggested by a member of the group. As winter has set in Swati, suggested Winter Warmers as the theme. Swati is a wonderful blogger with many varieties of dishes on her blog. I loved her Kesar Pista Burfi and No Yeast Bread bookmarked it to try in future.
