This is a great recipe, but I always tweak recipes to my taste so I increased the curry powder (2T) and added some garam masala (1t), and upped the nutritional value by adding some barley (1C), diced celery and carrots and chicken. I used homemade chicken stock instead of water, too, but the basic recipe alone is delicious. Great combination of spices!
Yesss! I used my own curry spice mix, which I've tweaked to my own liking, but it was perfect in this recipe. I used yellow split peas because that's what I had in the cabinet. Lovely.
This made an excellent starter course for a dinner party. It is very easy to make as well as being inexpensive. The soup was done in the time frame specified. I think I would have liked more curry powder. I used much less salt than called for in the recipe.
