Method

  1. Warm the oil and butter together in a saucepan and add the chopped onion. Cover with a lid and cook over a medium heat for a few mins before adding the curry powder. Add the potato and continue to cook for a further 5-10 mins.
  2. Pour the milk and 500ml water over the potatoes, then sprinkle in the vegetable stock cube. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 mins until the potatoes are completely tender. Season with a pinch of salt and blitz in a blender until smooth. For a slightly sweet touch, add the mango chutney, a teaspoon at a time to suit your taste, liquidising until smooth. Divide the soup into bowls, finishing with the coriander leaves if you have them.

this turned out really nice. I put less curry and added a tsp of ginger garlic paste and 1tsp of ground coriander and it's delicious

Simple and delicious. Added about 300ml of water (recipe doesn't say how much?) to thin it out. Will definitely make this again (and try it with sour cream too!)

very nice, had to sit for a day to get a little thicker consistency. Added about 6 tsp of the mango chutney

These scones are fantastic! I used soft light brown sugar as was all I had & extra baking powder with plain flour as I'd no SR. Fabulous, can't wait to make them again, thank you.

I found it more than spicy enough with the one tablespoon of curry powder so I would advise trying the basic recipe first before experimenting with more. I loved the texture and added dry coriander leaves whilst it was cooking.

Another shout for substituting parnsips for some/all of the potato from me! Personally I didn't think it was very spicy with the stated amount of curry powder, and I'm no vindaloo fiend! I added a tablespoon of Jalfrezi paste instead and that was lovely. No need for mango chutney either as between the parsnips and the sweet spice of the jalfrezi paste it was plenty sweet enough.

Great recipe. I cut the potatoes even smaller so it cooked quicker. I added in 200ml of water when i added the milk and another 150ml at the end to thin it out.

also works well with parsnips, I tried this the other night - no mango chutney needed as the parsnips are lovely and sweet

Made this but put an extra tablespoon of curry powder for a kick, went down really well and nice and warming for a winters night.

how much water???

500 ml of milk is mentioned in the ingredients but there is no mention of water?

Can anyone fill in the gap?

Hi there,
Thanks to all of you for pointing out the lack onf ingredients. It looks like a gremlin's been in our system and stolen them. Thanks to mom shakes for putting up the ingredients in the meantime, we've now reinstated them so hopefully you can all get on and enjoy this delicious soup!
