Why is it called tamatar ka shorba and not just tomato soup? Well, tamatar ka shorba or tomato shorba is a thick and spicy version of either a vegetable or meat gravy which has a soup like consistency. History of Tamatar ka shorba – Spiced Indian Tomato soup dates back to Persian times and this soup is totally different from the regular tomato soup.
On a cold and wintry day, there is nothing quite comforting as a hearty bowl of a warm soup. This delicious and healthy soup is pretty easy to make and comes together in just about 30 minutes. A must have in winters.
Now onto the recipe!
Wash and chop tomatoes, add all the ingredients to a pressure cooker and cook for 4-5 whistles (20-25 minutes in a pressure cooker without whistle). Feel free to add carrots, spinach or any leafy vegetables of your choice to make it more flavorful.
Tomatoes will become soft and mushy, discard the whole spices and puree the boiled mix. Essence of shorba lies in its tadka or tempering. Just before serving give a tadka of toasted cumin seeds and this will add extra flavor and texture to this soup.
