  • 2 tbsp curry paste
  • 1 onion, chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 2 carrot, grated



    The carrot, with its distinctive bright orange colour, is one of the most versatile root…

  • 140g red lentils
  • 1l hot vegetable stock

For the curry pinwheel rolls

  • 500g pack bread mix
  • 1 tbsp curry paste


  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 used a Madras curry paste as we like things nice and spicy - perfect.

Just made this for my husband to take to work, it tastes amazing! I followed the recipe and wouldn't change a thing, except for chopping rather than grating the carrots!

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!
