A recipe that the Mughals brought to India, shorba is the traditional Indian take on soup. Though you will find it mostly all over the country, the city of Hyderabad and many north Indian states are known for their own interpretation of this soup.

This tangy south Indian soup made with tamarind and tomatoes,though consumed throughout the year, is a warm, soothing drink when sipped on during the winters. Whether you decide to travel to Tamil Nadu, Karnataka or any other south Indian state, the taste is bound to be divine! Normal soup is replaced by Rasam on the appetizers served in the New Delhi to Bangalore trains.
