Tamatar Dhaniye ka shorba

It's raining heavily from last 5-6 days. You can expect rain any time in Bangalore. But this time it was very heavy. The weather is very cool. Both me and my husband was having cough and cold. So soup is a best option in evening time. Some days before we had 'Tamatar Dhaniye ka shorba' in Umerkot restaurant. It was awesome. I tried this on this Sunday eve. Really we felt better … clear throat after having it. It's a tomato soup with lush flavor of fresh coriander leaves and spices.


Chopped Tomatoes - 4 (Medium)

Chopped Onion - 1 (Medium)

Grated Carrot - 1 (Small)

Green chilli - 1-2

Chopped Ginger - 1 teaspoon

Chopped Garlic - 7-8 cloves

Black cardamom (badi elaichi) - 1

Cinnamon (dalchini) - 1" stick

Bay leaves (tej patta) - 1

Black pepper (Kali miri) - 6-7

Besan - 1 tablespoon

Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon

Chopped Coriander leaves -1/2 cup

Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

Turmeric powder -1/2 teaspoon

Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon

Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon

Butter - 1 tablespoon

Salt to taste


Heat the butter in a pan on medium heat; add cumin seeds, cardamom, cinnamon stick, and bay leaves; stir. Then add ginger, garlic and saute it . Add turmeric powder. Now add onion and fry till it changes colour to slight brown. Then add carrot and mix it. Now add tomato and saute it till tomatoes cooked neatly. Add besan and mix properly. This is for thickness. Now add all remaining ingredients. Add sufficient water and bring the mixture to the boil. Cover and keep on simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and strain into a separate bowl using a soup strainer. Serve hot with garnishing of coriander leaves.
