My parents grow a lot of vegetables. Although I live quite far away from them and neither of us has a car, I sometimes see my sister. Last time I saw her she gave me a savoy cabbage from my parents. Not being a big fan of cabbages, I was quite happy to find this Curried Cabbage Soup in the new edition of the Swiss cooking magazine called 'KOCHEN' (November 2005). I love spices and I enjoy nearly every dish with curry powder or paste in it. I used a recently bought Sri Lankan curry powder, which - as I found out - happens to be very very hot. The second time I prepared this soup I used half a tablespoon of the Sri Lankan and half a tablespoon of a mild curry powder. This soup makes a lovely starter or a nice meal.
