Yellow Curry Daal Recipe: A Scrumptious Sludge

Posted by vergelimbo On 5:05 PM 5 comments

2 lbs split chick peas [soaked]
2 large onions
8 cloves garlic
1 cup sliced baby carrots
2 red peppers
1 can coconut milk
1 cup vegetable stock
1 Tbsp Yellow Curry Powder
3 Tbsps Yellow Curry Paste
1/2 cup dried cranberries

When I make soup, I usually follow the "Go Big or Go Home" Maxim. As a result, I have an unusual 2-pot technique. I simmer the chick peas in a large cauldron-usually with some vegetable or chicken stock-until it is done. Simultaneously in a large frypan, I sautee all the vegetables, then add the coconut milk, stock, curry paste etc. When they are well blended, I pour these ingredients back into the massive pot, and simmer until done.
My "upsizing" has led me to start an ad hoc soup network whereby I deliver fresh soups to my friends and they, in turn, reciprocate. Another perk of making large batches is the benefit of "Aromatherapy" ... soup slowly simmering smells like home.


wow...you cook too! i am impressed. you have me thinking about making soup now...what a wonderful idea.

Yum. Can I join the soup network? I love to make soup and my freezer is full, but I just can not make a smaller quantity. Ever.

Men are like soup: you always want to have one on the back burner, just in case.

Hi. Love your recipe! I must try it...sounds pretty easy with your technique! Thanks...

Mmmm...sounds devine...thank you!
