Smooth, creamy, curried deliciousness! This is certainly not an "authentic" recipe, however it is easy and very flavorful. Lots of ingredients, but the flavor is worth every one of them. Recipe calls for ready made chicken broth, however I make my own ahead of time using a leftover rotisserie chicken. Additional cayenne can be added for "zip" or serve with Sriracha sauce. Other spices (like garam masala) can be added or substituted as well - it's a very adaptable soup. Great soup with some nice crusty bread! I omit the rice if there's good bread involved.
