Masala Soup step by step
- Melt the butter and oil in a saucepan. Add the nigella seeds, cinnamon and garam masala and cook on a medium heat for 2 minutes..
- Add the garlic to the pan and cook for a further 2 minutes..
- Whilst the garlic is cooking, whizz up the sundried tomatoes, tomato puree, leek and ginger in a blender with a dash of boiling water. You could just grind it all together in a pestle and mortar if you dont have a blender small enough..
- Add this paste to the pan and cook for 10 minutes..
- Add 2 tbsps of coconut milk and mix with the paste. Mix in all your chopped veg and stir well. Cook for a few minutes, stirring..
- Now add your stock and the rest of the coconut milk. Bring to the boil and simmer on a low heat with the lid on for 20 minutes, or until your veg are soft..
- Add a heaped tsp of mango chutney and whizz your soup with a hand blender until it is completely smooth – I think this soup is best without any lumps!.
- Add the lime juice, yoghurt and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and serve in a warm bowl with some lovely bread – or maybe a small, warm naan bread..
