I thought I would really enjoy this. The soup itself was bland and had little real flavor apart from the added chutney and the depth from the sour cream. Maybe if it were made with stock or broth rather than water and a increasing the aromatics? *Made for ZWT*
i had this with a half a sandwich for lunch yesterday & it was a nice addition. i would have liked a bolder flavor..if i were to make it again i'd probably try adding a bit more of the curry powder. made for zwt4.
This is a mild-tasting soup that does need a good dose of salt & pepper before serving! I substituted a combo of non-fat yogurt & cornstarch for the sour cream (1 cup yogurt to 1 tablespoon cornstarch), & actually used 2 tablespoons of that in one bowl of soup, along with the chutney! I then made up my own curry powder with cumin, ginger, turmeric, coriander, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon & dry mustard! Very, very nice cold soup for the summer evenings!
