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.
Pumpkin soup or shorba
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.
