Indian Carrot SoupMy husband has been battling a nasty winter chest cold and this soup made the perfect lunch recently. One addition would be to serve the soup with pita bread. If you can find seasoned pita bread such as sesame or onion it would be delicious with this meal! This soup can be served hot or cold. It was the perfect to enjoy on a cold winter’s day and I imagine it would be equally as good chilled during the summer. If the soup is too spicy for your taste adding a little yogurt tames some of the spiciness. Good to know if your curry powder has a little kick!Indian Carrot Soup

2 tsp curry powder

¼ tsp ground coriander

¼ tsp ground cardamom

In a medium saucepan, heat the oil. Sauté the onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the curry powder, coriander, and cardamom; cook, stirring for 1 minute.

In a food processor or blender, puree the carrots with some of the broth. Stir the puree into the remaining broth. Serve at once or refrigerate, covered until chilled. Serve topped with yogurt and garnished with a carrot curl and mint spring. Makes about 4 servingsIndian Carrot Soup

 

My husband said this soup felt great on his scratchy throat. It’s not a sweet soup but very satisfying and perfect for a cold winter’s day. I’m looking forward to making it again this summer, I imagine it would be equally as delicious served chilled some summer day.Indian Carrot Soup

When I was pregnant witht he twins the only things I wanted to eat was lamb, spinach and carrot soup. I probably ate it three times a week!
