Curried Carrot Soup

Even though I love soups and salads, there are hardly any recipes featured on this blog of mine. It is mainly because I don’t have a family who are really soup and salad friendly. I guess that’s with many Indian households, where salads and soups are never a part of our eating culture. Whenever we dine out, I make it a point to have soup first along with the salads, but at home, laziness drags me to not make it all for myself.


I had quite a bit of carrots in the fridge and I was plain lazy one night – what a combination! I gave a call to HD, “Hmm… I am feeling lazy to cook dinner. Would some carrot soup do?” There was a long silence on the other side of the phone, before I got an affirmative reply. So excitedly, I kept browsing on my phone and zeroed down on this delicious soup which hardly takes any time to make and is perfect for the cold and lazy nights… πŸ™‚Β Recipe adapted from here

  27. Hello,
    The recipe uses chicken stock cubes so this becomes a non veg base soup. I am sorry that you cannot bring this soup to the event or unless you add a vegetarian option, highlighting its use.
    I hope you can modify the post for the event. It is a purely vegetarian event!
    Sonal @ simplyvegetarian777

    1. Hi Sonal… I've updated the post just to show it as stock cubes… I had used chicken stock cubes, whichever cubes are used is OK as it is only used like a flavor enhancer… hope it is fine for you now!

    2. Absolutely fine now :). Thanks!

  28. This is WOW!!! I never added curry powder in any soup… But this is a must try πŸ™‚ Love carrot soup so obviously, I'm gonna love this!!! Thanks for bringing it to our event, Rafee πŸ™‚
