Delicious soup and so easy to make. I made as directed and mixed the yogurt in for a nice creamy texture and taste.

Very simple soup to make that cooks up quickly. I didn't have curry paste so I used 1 Tbsp of curry powder. Also used chicken broth in place of vegetable stock. I found the yogurt to round out the flavor nicely.

I think this soup is very good. I did use small, rather than baby carrots - toddlers, perhaps? And also used homemade chicken stock. I had only Indian style curry powder, which included some flour, so I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of that, with no other flour. (I think I could have used slightly less, but am quite happy with the soup, so maybe not.) I love cilantro anyway, but also think it is an important ingredient in this soup - the flavor went from just okay to really wonderful after it was added. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe.
