    SolightlyUK's Note:

    My mum-in-law got this out of a newspaper (not sure which one) and I made it last night to rave reviews. It's truly delicious -- creamy with a distinctly different taste. It only takes a few minutes to prepare -- great for a week night. When she made it, she used it for an appetizer, but I served it as a main dish. Please note: I accidentally used 2 tablespoons of curry powder instead of the 2 teaspoons called for and we loved it! Admittedly, it is a very mild curry powder.

      This isn't bad, but I used home-made curry powder and it was very strong! I'd halve it next time, but you might be OK if yours is less fresh. I used vegetable stock (being vegetarian) and I'd say it only makes 2 or 3 serves, unless you're having something else with it. It's certainly very easy to make.

      Excellent soup. I used the recommended 2 tsp of curry powder, as it was quite a strong one with whole spices in it, and I would use the same amount next time. I used a hand blender to blend the soup in the saucepan, to save having to transfer it to the food processor. A good, warming recipe!
