Tomatoes are very rich in vitamin C and weight watchers need not worry as they are very low in calories as well. The choicest aromatic and flavorful spices like star anise (chakra phool), whole black cardamom (Moti Elaichi, Bay leaves( Tej Patta), Cinnamon ( Dalchini) and cloves (Laung) are added to the tomatoes and pressure cooked together with a small onion, green chilly, ginger and two garlic cloves to make the tomato broth.Once all the ingredients are boiled together, we discard the whole spices and hand blend the broth to make a rich tomato puree.
The most loved ingredient however is the cheese added to the already warm tomato broth.
The addition of cheese gives the shorba a slightly sour and slightly salty and creamy taste and flavor. A handful of sugar is added to balance out the sourness of the tomatoes and salty and sour taste of cheese.
We understand that you are hungry already. But you have to wait for the last step.
In a pan, we heat a delicious slice of butter and when it melts, we add cumin seeds (jeera). Once they crackle, we pour the tempering into the already delicious tomato and cheese broth.
