A very simple and easy soup to make. Delicious creamy hearty soup. Try adding a little chilli. I found this addition added to the flavour. - 10 Sep 2013


This soup was delicious, really easy to follow. When I made my second batch I added a teaspoon of mango chutney and a teaspoon of Balti paste which gives a nice "bite" to the soup. - 04 Oct 2013
