This soup recipe was bought to new Zealand from India by the late Canon Hadlow and his wife Sheila and is a popular recipe to this day.
Notes from Carol: As I don’t have or could not find a Mouli i waited until the mixture was cool (second attempt) and put it through my food processor/blender.
WARNING: Wait until the mixture is cool, trust me it is not wise to put hot mixture through a blender, kitchen whizz. kitchen walls don’t look pretty when hot mixture shoots out from the blender. I now have a blender stick and it works really well.
