    I developed this recipe after spending sometime in Fiji where I fell in love with their way of cooking.

    1. In a large pot, bring water to the boil. Add carrots, potatoes, celery, onion and garlic; return to the boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until carrots are tender.
    2. Remove soup from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes. Purée in blender or food processor in batches until smooth (or use a hand held blender). Return puréed soup to pot.
    3. Add soy sauce, cumin, cayenne pepper, chilli powder and curry powder; stir well. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly. Stir in instant mash. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Adjust seasonings to taste. Serve hot.

    Tip:

    Simply omit the instant mash if desired. Or, thicken the soup with an equal mixture of flour or cornflour and water.
