Most people believe shorbas to be creamy heavy concoctions. Here's a delicious Shorba prepared with refreshing limbo and dhania and packed with the goodness of vegetables like carrots, celery and cabbage. Limbo Dhania ka Shorba is a near clear concoction that uses besan for thickening and loads of dhania and lime, which give it a lovely flavour and texture. All in all a highly fragrant and tasty preparation that is a must try for everyone.
