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.

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

Absolutely delicious! A hit with everyone, have made it 3 times so far. So easy to make, add abit more curry paste if you like it spicier. I haven't bothered to make the rolls, as I'm gluten free and just have it with gluten free bread or rolls. 5 star!

I'd be interested to hear any variations on this, I might try some soon.

I was in a rush making this and didn't cook the onions and carrots down enough. The end result was I couldn't blend it to a smooth consistency. Also, I used a hot curry paste which spoiled the flavour of the other ingredients so all in all a bit of a failure but I would make again using a milder paste and would pay a bit more attention next time! Served with crusty bread.

Used rogan josh paste, wasn't hot enough for me so would add crushed chillies next time.

Hmm this looks tasty - will definitely make the pinwheels - i do a similar thing with puff pastry, marmite and grated cheddar.

Didn't make the pinwheels either but the recipe works well and is extremely easy.

The soup was lovely and much appreciated by all the guests. I used a medium balti paste and increased the quantity slightly because we like heat. I added some chopped coriander just before serving. I didn't make the pinwheels - just served the soup with plain and garlic and coriander naan bread. Will most certainly make this again.
