Moong Dal Shorba Recipe| Easy Soup Recipes

Shorba. Now what s a shorba? Its nothing but soup and comes from the Arabic word Chorba. Now chorba finds a way into many tables across the globe- Romania, Russia and some parts of Central Europe and Asia. ( Source: Wiki) I have been treated to some of the best shorbas ( vegetarian versions) while in Bangalore. This moong dal shorba is my version of a hearty shorba that s vegan and healthy. Its filling and at the same time, can be enjoyed with some steamed hot rice too. Add some freshly baked croutons and the shorba reaches new heights. That s what i did anyway.
