Adapted from Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp grated ginger

1 potato, diced
1 carrot, sliced
1 cup red or yellow lentils
4 cups vegetable stock or water
1 1/2 tsp salt
black pepper

Method:

Heat the olive oil in a soup pot. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the curry powder and fry for another 10 seconds. Add the potato, carrot and lentils and stir briefly. Add the stock or water, bring to a boil and simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the lentils are tender. Add salt and pepper to taste. Purée part of the soup with an immersion blender and serve.

Interesting...Jaffrey doesn't seem to use much "purchased" curry...you found one recipe which does! Thanks for sharing!

This does look fitting for a cold day.

Great choice, Andreas. I love lentils and, in fact, when I was trying to decide on a dish for this week, this was the one that I almost chose. But in the end a fish curry won me over. This one is definitely on my list to make though before we're finished with Madhur :-)

This sounds very warming and comforting. I bet it is very satisfying.

I can see that this soup is really delicious with the ingredients that went into it. This would be lovely with some Indian bread!
