Curry Lentil Soup

Lentils and potatoes are always fantastic together and make this soup pure comfort. Plus it's a pretty low maintenance recipe - any combination of veggies can go into it and it'll turn out great.

  1. Add the oil to a large pot on high heat. When hot, add the onion and sauté until golden, about 5 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to deglaze the pan.
  2. Then add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Add the water, bouillon cube, potatoes, and spices, and stir.
  4. Bring to boil, reduce to a simmer, and partially cover. Cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the drained lentils, carrots, zucchini, and soy sauce. Bring back to a boil, partially cover, then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. When the lentils and potatoes are fully cooked, serve while hot. Optionally, for a creamier texture, you can use an immersion blender to purée some of the soup. Enjoy!

Oh My Soup! A favorite at home. I love the combination and i made it with home made herbal bouillon. Plus, love all the spices. Your work is an inspiration. Thank you!

Smells divine and tastes great. Thanks for introducing another stample into my kitchen, Sadia and team :).

Delicious and satisfying. I didn't have garam masala but it still turned out delicious.

Dalma - Sept. 29, 2021, 8:14 a.m.

Hi :) This recipe sounds amazing. I was just wondering if I could make it in a slow cooker? I have some errands to run and it would save me a lot of time, if I could just put all the ingredients in the slow cooker and leave it there. Would that effect the taste immensely?

PUL Team - Sept. 29, 2021, 9:04 p.m.

Hey there, Dalma, thanks for the question! We haven't tested it out so we can't say with absolute certainty, but we imagine it would work fine. Do let us know if you experiment with it 🤗

Just made it and it is delicious!! 😋

Day 2... I just have say, THANK YOU Sadia & PUL Team!! Y'all never fail to put out delicious recipes!! I am a very picky eater and I have several dietary restrictions. I love food, so in the past it's made me sad when I have to give up yet another food group. Since I've started making your recipes (instead of *just* watching your videos haha), I always look forward to my meals/treats :)

Hello! I have made several of your recipes and I simply wish to say- thank you! The effort you have put into this, I can feel it. Every detail is masterfully well thought out. I deeply appreciate this beautiful website and recipes. I also noticed how you have put ingredients in an order of how they should be used- that is so nice and comfortable to use!

Please keep up the good work-

Best Regards,

Love this soup! Made it a couple of times, very handy to give away to mum(-in law)s too! 😉

I've made this recipe plenty of times, my ultimate fave! The ingredients list doesn't show the amount for soy sauce :)

PUL Team - April 27, 2021, 5:11 a.m.

We're so glad to hear this, Joy, and thanks for the heads up! Apologies for any confusion this may have caused. We've updated the ingredient list 🙂

No worries. I've already memorised some of the quantities for this recipe - that's how much I love this soup! <3
