  • Fill the kettle to the litre mark and set it to boil.
  • Peel and finely chop the onions. Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves.
  • Wash and peel the carrots, then grate them all and reserve in a large bowl.
  • Heat the oil in the large stockpot over medium heat. Add onion, 2 teaspoons of the curry powder blend and a grind of pepper. Cook stirring occasionally until the onion is soft for about 5 minutes. Add in the grated carrots and garlic, stir in and then sweat for 1 few minutes with the lid on and the heat low.

  • Puree the soup using the stick blender until super smooth and then check the seasoning. Weigh the yoghurt and then stir into the soup, creating a big whirl.
  • Ladle into soup bowls and serve garnished with the coriander.

Notes: What do the individual spices of the curry powder smell like? And then how do they smell when they’re all combined?
