How to make Curried Carrot Shorba

  1. Soak the almonds and cashews in 1/2 cup of water for 4-5 hours or overnight
  2. In a saucepan, heat 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil and 1 tsp butter. Once the butter melts, to this add the sliced onions. Saute on high flame till the onions are caramelized and golden brown. Take 2 tsp of cooked onion from this and keep aside.
  3. Toss in the minced ginger, garlic and chopped green chillies; fry for 2 minutes.

  5. In a food processor, put the cooked carrots, potato, soaked almonds and cashews. Add 1/2 cup water and blend to form a smooth puree.
  6. Now take a pot. Add 1 1/2 cups of vegetable broth/water and bring to a boil.
  7. Add in the curried carrot puree and mix well. To this, add in pepper and chipotle/paprika to taste. Bring to a boil.
  8. Add in sour cream/cream and stir the shorba. Remove from flame. Curried carrot shorba is ready.

My Tip:

To serve, pour shorba in the bowl. Drizzle a dash of olive oil. Sprinkle some paprika on top and add in a few strands of caramelized onions for garnishing
