      This entire recipe is so amazingly different from anything I’ve made or eaten before. Great flavours; great variety of textures. It’s one of those recipes that takes a while to make, but it’s so worth the effort. I always find making a cauldron of hearty soup so very satisfying - and the aromas as it was cooking were just heavenly. No single flavour dominated in either the meatballs or in the soup itself: the many flavours blended together so perfectly. I made this soup for my parents and two friends – a mega-quantity as I had doubled the recipe – and they absolutely loved it, and my mother is really happy that there are quite a few more serves in the freezer! It even pleased the notoriously hard to please 85 year old who is always so reluctant to admit to liking anything. He came back for seconds. And my friends wanted the recipe. The only changes I made in making this were to use Evelyn's Fried Red Tomatoes Evelyn's Fried Red Tomatoes instead of the tomato paste, which is one of the few things that gives me heartburn, and to use Kate Chef’s Roasted Vegetable Stock Roasted Vegetable Stock instead of the chicken broth. I also reduced the curry powder to just one heaped teaspoon (personal taste preference) for a double quantity of the soup and increased the garlic to 6 cloves (again a personal taste preference). I garnished each bowl of soup with a generous dollop of Greek yoghurt and chopped green onions. An absolutely delightful soup. And I’m going to try that scrumptious meatballs recipe as a meatloaf, and try it with pork/veal mince. We ate this on a very mild day; in winter, it would be just so warming. This is a soup to make often! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, ellie_!
