New Zealand Curried Lamb Soup

Recipe by Chocolatl

This uses cooked lamb, so it's a good way to use up the leftovers from that roast. It can also be made with chicken. Adapted from Sam Choy's Polynesian Kitchen. I don't cook carrots with lamb, but I've left it in in case you choose to make this with chicken.
