Wow. I paired this with Mama Vi's Spinach Salad With Curry and Chutney Dressing and it was wonderful. I did not have any curry leaves, so I did find it necessary to add a pinch of curry powder at the end of cooking. Out of personal taste, I added 1/4 cup of peanutbutter after using the blender (it made the soup much richier and silkier and gave it a slightly nutty taste). The toasted mustard seeds are the perfect "finish" for this dish. A dollop of mango chutney on the top was also quite good.
