If you are a curry lover then the chances are you will love curry soup too. There are so many different types of curried soup, from vegetable soups which are seasoned with curry spices, through to traditional curried soups such as Mulligatawny soup, which is a traditional South Indian curry soup which over the years has taken on many different guises, with some recipes including meat and others not.
Lentil or dahl soups are also wonderful as curry soups with the texture of the lentils complementing the spicy curry seasoning.
