This is a thick and warming curry soup that is ideal for cold winter days. Soup can be refrigerated several times, and actually tastes better on the second day!
Nice base recipe. I changed it, however. I took the bacon out, as I'm vegetarian. Then I sauteed the onion with ginger, curry powder and garam masala, added the soaked lentils (red and brown), then filled the pot with boiling water. I added a potato, a whole sweet potato, two grated carrots, and two sticks of celery. I also used some vegetable stock. When it was cooked, I used a stick mixer and whizzed it all together. It's really quite yummy! - 24 Apr 2011
