This was so easy to make. I used Penzey's hot curry powder and their no-salt chicken broth base. This was the first time using garam masala, so I was not sure what taste to be watching for. I guess I'll have to use it in a recipe with fewer ingredients to be able to pick out the flavor. Made for *ZWT 6* I'm on Team *Ya Ya Cookerhood*

This is good. I used extra virgin olive oil, a bit more garlic, no bell pepper out of preference, brown lentils, my own homemade chicken stock, Julie's Curry Powder Mix a sweet rather than hot curry powder, Garam Masala - Aromatic Kashmiri Spice Blend for Spicy Cooking!, freshly ground black pepper, sea salt, and I cooked the green onion into the soup per preference as well. Plus all the rest of the ingredients. I served this with a fresh salad as a light meal. Made for ZWT6 Asian region, for my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

I recently discovered that I have high blood pressure so I have been experimenting with recipes like this. this was very delicious although I made some changes. I added 2 cups of nonfat milk and only 6 cups of water. Also, I prefer keeping a jar of chicken bullion as opposed to a huge jug of chicken broth so I added 1tsp of bullion to the milk and water base. For some spice, since I shorted on the salt, I added paprika and plenty of ginger as well as doubling (or maybe even tripling, didn't measure) the amount of curry I added as well as adding a health squirt of Tapatio to the top of the finished product. I omitted the garam masala because frankly, I don't know what that is! Thanks for the idea.
