    1. Melt the butter in a large heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir in ginger, paprika, cumin, chilli powder, curry powder and ground coriander; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
    2. Add the chopped onion; cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onions have softened. Add chopped parsnip, carrots and celery; stir well and simmer for 15 minutes.
    3. Stir in red lentils and rice; add vegetable stock, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft. Turn off the heat and puree the soup using an immersion blender until smooth.
    4. Put the soup pot back on low heat and pour in the coconut milk. Add the chopped coriander and reheat gently but try not to let the soup boil.
    5. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Serve with a sprig of fresh coriander, a dash of lime juice and a swirl of coconut milk for decoration.
