    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #242 MASALA DABBA What is a Masala Dabba? Masala is the word that refers to spice in the Indian Subcontinent and dabba is a tin. Every Indian household wherever they may live, be it in India, US, UK, Australia, Europe, Africa, etc will have a tin where spices that are used regularly are kept. Just spooning them out from the masala dabba or tin is so much easier than opening and closing individual spice jars or bottles. What my Masala Dabba contains Depending on which part of India you come from or which community you belong to, the spices in the dabba will vary.

    The word Shorba originates from the word chorba, sorpa, shurpa. This soup is widely enjoyed in the Middle Eastern Countries, some parts of Europe, Asia and Africa. It is believed that the soup originates from Persia. Hot salted water with added meats, vegetables made this a versatile dish that even travelers could make. No wonder popularity of this healthy and easy to make dish spread far and wide. India was introduced to Shorba during the Mughal Era. Vegetarians then came up with their version of shorba. My favorite  is a tomato shorba anytime, which I tend to make so often. When I made some Qubani Naan, I wanted to pair it with a curry. However, hubby insisted that I make a soup and before I…
