Crumble the bread and sprinkle with the vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the bread to soak up the vinegar.
Put the tomatoes, cucumber, capsicum, onion and garlic in a blender or food processor with 50ml of cold water and whizz to a purée. Add the soaked bread, oil, curry powder and sugar. Blend again and season to taste. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Just before serving, stir the yoghurt into the soup. Thin the soup with a little cold water if it is too thick. Serve chilled, sprinkled with shredded basil.
