  • 2 tbsp curry paste
  • 1 onion, chopped



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

  • 2 carrots, 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.

Didn't make the bread, just the soup. Used chicken stock and Rogan Josh curry paste, which did not make it too spicy, just gave it a bit of a zing. Also, I replaced 1 carrot by a parsnip, because that's what I had in the fridge. It was lovely! Will definitely make again.

Very tasty and filling, despite being vert simple. I didn't make the bread, only the soup. Everyone loved it, I will make it again!

This is really simple and very tasty. I used 2 x tbs of garam masala and chicken stock which seemed to work well and has made a generous amount.

... 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.
