    I think the success of this soup depends on the curry powder used. I made my own mix - turmeric, garam masala, ground coriander, cumin and a tiny bit of chili powder. I also added crushed garlic cloves. The soup was delicious and I'll certainly be making more  -  22 Sep 2010


    Something else. Curry powder from a jar is very mild, so I mixed my own for this recipe. See my review.  -  22 Sep 2010


    If you like your food green and murky looking then this is for you! Didn't taste of much at all - definitely lacking something but don't know what.  -  06 Aug 2009
