Old fashioned pakistani chicken shorba

Old fashioned pakistani chicken shorba

This is an easy recipe of shorba that our grand mothers and mothers  usually made in the old indian style..It does not require too much spices and taste is good…they used coriander powder for good taste…Shorba consistency and taste depends on the quantity of onions and tomatoes.Also bhunai of masala is a must.Too much onions or tomatoes would spoil the taste. Do not add too much water. Measure 2 cups of water for this shorba and boil it.Water should be boiling hot.
