Recipe by Mami J

This savory soup with Indian flavors is super nutritious and low fat. Make it as spicy as you want. Found on a Martha Stewart magazine with a few adaptations.

Whew! This was hot (and we like hot). Maybe a little bit too hot, which detracted a bit from the nice flavor of the soup. If you are using a medium hot curry powder, it might be best to omit the chile (we used serrano). I liked that the soup was really easy to make and did not take long at all. I really enjoyed the sweet potato. Thanks.
