Pumpkin soup or shorba

         I have generally seen  recipes where the pumpkin is roasted and then pureed to the soup along with the appropriate spices. It tastes nice. But I found a different recipe here. It sounded quite different along with the Indian spices and a tangy juice. I decided to try it and it tasted really good and different. Try it sometime if you are bored of the similar flavoured usual soups. I am sure you will love it.
Ingredients
Pumpkin- 1 cup chopped into small pieces
Orange juice-1 cup
Vegetable stock or water-2cups
Ginger- 1 small pieced chopped
Salt to taste
White pepper powder-1tsp
Cinnamon-1small stick
Bay leaves- 1 small piece
Turmeric powde-1tsp
Red chilly powder-1tsp
Olive oil-1tsp

Method-
     Add the juice and one glass of water or stock along with pumpkin pieces,cinnamon and bay leaves.Add salt and pepper. Allow it to cook for about 15 to 20 minutes till the liquid evaporates and the pumpkin pieces are cooked thoroughly. Now puree this mixture with a hand blender or a mixer.
      Heat oil in a pan. Return the puree to the pan. Add the remaining glass of water or stock. Add turmeric powder and red chilly powder. Allow it to boil for another 5 minutes.Garnish with finely chopped coriander.
      Serve warm with some bread.

Hi Sowmya

Great looking soup that you have prepared. adding orange soup must have multiplied the taste of it.

Lovely orange colour to the soup. I am tempted to try this soup, usually the sweetness of the pumpkin comes to mind and i put the thought off:)
