Scotch Curried Chicken Soup Recipe

This is a recipe for a hearty soup, filled with just enough spices to give a very warm feeling on a cold Winters morning.

Curried Chicken Soup

1 oz Butter
1 Stick Celery (diced)
1 Chopped Medium Onion
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
4 oz cooked chicken(leftovers are fine)
1 & 1/2 pints chicken stock
Seasoning (Salt & Pepper)
2 medium carrots (sliced)
1 dessert apple (cored, diced)
1 teaspoon chopped coriander
4 tablespoons cream/plain yoghurt

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the onions, carrots and celery. Cover and sweat for approx. 5 minutes. Then add the curry powder, cooked chicken and apple slices. Pour in the stock and cover and simmer for 40 minutes.

Remove from heat and transfer to a food processor when cool enough to handle. Blend until smooth. Return to the pan and reheat then season to taste.

Serve with hot rolls or bread and garnish the soup with the coriander adding a swirl of cream to each bowl.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
