Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. For the rolls, make up the bread mix following pack instructions, then roll out to a 30 x 40cm rectangle. Spread over the curry paste, then roll up, starting with the longest edge, like a roly poly. Cut into 8 slices and transfer to a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 mins or until golden and cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, make the soup. Fry the curry paste and onion in a large pan for 2 mins until fragrant. Stir in the carrots and lentils and mix to coat in the curry paste. Cook for 2 mins, then pour in the stock and simmer for 20 mins until the lentils are tender. Whizz with a stick blender until smooth, add some seasoning and serve with the curry pinwheels.

I added 2 onions and about 6 cloves of garlic. Also used a mix of madras and masala pastes as wanted it to have a bit of a kick. Was delicious! Even my partner said it was amazing and he doesn't usually even like soup.

This is such a simple and such a gorgeous soup. I served my cheat's nan bread on the side (pita breads made into "nan", brushed with water and olive oil, with maldon salt, garam masala spice and fresh coriander on top, baked in the oven at 170 degrees Celsius for 5- 8 minutes). Will definitely make this soup again. Even my fussy 8-year-old son loved it.

We love soup so I thought this one sounded nice, but neither of us liked the texture and just thought it was a bit 'ordinary.' Won't be making it again!

Really easy to make, I doubled the recipe and used 3 onions and 5 carrots and balti paste. Really easy, tasty and loads to freeze :O) I served with homemade flatbreads - a crowd pleaser on a cold winters night.

I love this soup. It's incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious. I wouldn't change a thing - it's perfect as it is. The best part is that I had all of the ingredients in the cupboard already and used up the tikka masala paste that had been sitting in my fridge for the past few weeks. It would be nice to know the nutritional information for the soup alone as I didn't make the pinwheels.

So quick and simple to make and very healthy, this went down great with my kids, they're already asking when I'm going to make it again.

Very nice and super easy to make. I used Rohan Josh paste, I'd like to try a few different pastes to see which gives the best flavour.

I made this at the weekend and it was LOVELY! Hubby RAVED over it, which he doesn't normally do!

For those of you who haven't made the pinwheel rolls yet - DO try them - they really complete the recipe and are lovely to dunk in the soup... (I didn't have bread mix in so used the measurements as suggested by Karen44 above).

A lovely warming soup for these cold winter days...

This recipe works well, even without the curry paste. Possibly better without the curry paste, as you can add a little bit of chillies peppers and blend with the mix if you want it hot.

This is a simple, easy to make, tasty soup that smells yummy as it cooks. It's not fine dinning, just a good midweek meal!

Delicious :) I put some milk in to thin it out and make it creamier. So cheap to make too! Will become a regular supper I think!

I do not own a blender so I could not make it smooth but that did not matter as it was still fantastic.

Made the parsnip version as I had some to use up. Beautiful soup, lovely texture and really warming. Not as nice the next day for some reason?!

FANTASTIC soup and so easy to make. All the family loved it, will b e making it again soon.!
I did make the bread but I did not use a packet mix. Simply used 250g Strong white flour, 1 tbspn oil, 1 tsp salt 1tsp dried yeast and 150mls of warm water. simply mix together to form a dough, knead for 10 mins, shape the dough as detailed and then leave to prove for 30 mins or until doubled in size. I made 8 rolls. Will double the mixture next time and then freeze half to make it easier in the future. DELICIOUS
