The tamatar dhania ka shorba is a punjabi's version of the ever popular tomato soup. Shorbas were made popular by the princes and maharajas in india. Served piping hot, this shorba combines the goodness of tomatoes and coriander. Besan is used as a thickening agent for the shorba. The curry leaves, mustard seeds and cumin seeds impart a deliciously indian flavour and the sugar helps curb the tanginess of the tomatoes.
