Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot over low heat. Add onion, garlic and ginger; stirring occasionally to prevent browning, cook until the onion is soft and translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add curry powder and rice; cook for 5 minutes longer.

  • Add chicken, broth and water. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium. Simmer, stirring frequently, just until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 30 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate to cool.

  • Puree soup in batches in a food processor until smooth, adding water as needed for a creamy texture. Return soup to cleaned pot and heat again to a simmer.

  • Shred the chicken into small strips and add to the soup along with tomato; cook 3 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, stir in lemon juice. Ladle into bowls and garnish with cilantro or chives.

Good idea gone wrong I love curry soup but this is too much. The curried carrot soup on this site is one of my favorites and uses 2 tsp. of curry for six servings. This uses 3 Tbs (9 tsp.). Maybe this is a typo but it makes the soup too hot too one dimensional and just not enjoyable. Pros: Pureed rice is a great thickener Cons: Too much curry! Read More
