Method

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the curry powder for 1 min until fragrant. Stir in the veg, cover with three-quarters of the stock and simmer for 5-10 mins.
  2. Blend the soup until very smooth with a hand blender or food processor, adding more stock if the soup is too thick. Stir in the cream and ham, then return to the pan and gently reheat. Season and serve with a drizzle of cream on top.

I made this with hot curry powder and it had a proper kick to it! It was lovely.
However, the recipe quantities only gave me 3 not-very-big bowls of soup. Next time I would double or even treble the quantity. But I would recommend it!

Made this with Christmas leftovers and ham stock - delicious, and always make with left over ham stock now. Sometimes make pancetta wrapped croutons as well if just having soup on its own.

I swapped the parsnips for carrots. Also, I used turkey instead of ham to use up Xmas dinner. It was delicious. I'd also agree that only 750ml of stock is needed so you only need to use one stock cube.

Really tasty. Didn't need as much stock as it suggests though. Could easily leave the ham out too.

Not bad at all! Made this with creme fraiche, and with fresh veg rather than leftovers, and just simmered it for a while longer. Very tasty.

friends made this for us when we went for a meal last night, we all thought it delicious, so now I'll make it too. I don't think they put the curry pdr in, but it was still packed with flavour.
