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.
