This is a thick and hearty soup from Low Fat One Dish Meals From Around The World - an Anglo-Indian recipe, this was posted for ZWT III. I spiced this up with some cayenne pepper and garam masala when I made it.
Place chicken breasts in a large saucepan or soup pot and add water to cover.
Add the curry, onion, garlic and parsley.
Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer till chicken is tender, about 30 minutes.
Remove the chicken from the stock and set aside to cool.
Add enough water to the stock to make 6 cups. Bring to a boil, and add the rice, brown lentils, split peas, bell peppers, salt, ground pepper and apple. Simmer gently.
When the chicken is cool enough to handle, dice it and add to the pot. Cook the soup for 35 minutes more, then stir in red lentils and continue cooking till the rice is done and legumes are tender (about 10 minutes).
