After a weekend of delicious excesses, I’m ready for a healthy alternative. This weekend I’ve eaten like a queen –fried food, buttery paratha’s, creamy curries, biryani’s, naan, and more units of chocolates than I really care to count. So today I’decide to make light and nutritious meal. Weather is quite rainy so relaxing with this warming and nutritiousChicken Shorba –Chicken Curry– will be something to look forward to when I get home back from Uni.
I made this Chicken Shorba last night and it only took 1 hour to prepare and cook. It’s in the fridge now and can be warmed up in few minutes. Normally I would serve this tangy and satisfying Chicken Shorba (chicken soup) with steamed rice but to make it easy, I served it with tandoori roti.
