Shorwa ( Persian/ Pashto: شوروا; or shurwa, shorba, surwa; literally "soup") is a traditional Afghan soup. The larger Persian term shorba is used to mean "soup" widely across Eurasia (c.f. Turkish çorba).

Shorwa is meant to be a simple dish. It is usually served communally in a single bowl and is mixed with bread on the dastarkhān. Preparing the shorwa is a long process and to speed up the process a pressure cooker is used normally. It takes at least two hours to get it cooked in the pressure cooker. The main ingredients for shorwa are potato, meat (mutton, beef or chicken) and beans.
