Matar ka Shorba

Ingredients to make Matar ka Shorba

  • 2 cups Green peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 teaspoons ghee
  • 1 medium Red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch piece ginger
  • 1 Green chilli
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cardamom pod
  • 1 inch piece cinnamon
  • Microgreens, Sprouts or Fresh Herbs to serve
  • salt to taste

How to make Matar ka Shorba

  1. In a large pot, bring about 4 cups of water to boil. Add half teaspoon of salt and bring it to a boil again.
  2. Add the green peas into the boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes or until the peas are almost cooked. Strain and dunk into cold water immediately to cool.
  3. When they have cooled, strain and transfer to a food processor and make a puree with approximately half cup of water. You can either make a smooth puree or leave it a bit chunky like I did.
  4. Next, heat the ghee in a large saucepan. Add the cumin seeds, cardamom, cinnamon and bay leaves. When the spices release aroma, add in the chopped onion.
  5. While the onion is frying, make a paste of the ginger, garlic, green chilli, mint and cilantro. When the onion has browned, add the ginger-garlic paste and fry till the raw smell is gone.
  6. Next add the peas puree and about 1 cup water. You can add more water, as per the desired consistency.
  7. Add salt as per taste, mix well and bring it to a boil. Then let it simmer for 1 more minute.
  8. Take off the heat and serve immediately, topped with micro greens, sprouts or fresh herbs.

My Tip:

To maintain the vibrant green color of the soup, make sure not to overcook the peas!
