This soup is a favorite with my guests. A few have told me even to forget the rest of the meal when you serve this, nothing can compete. Please, you be the judge.

What a comforting fall soup. This is a creamy and savory pumpkin curry soup recipe with a hint of nutmeg spice. The combination of seasonings complements each other very well. We loved the addition of toasted coconut on top. Finishes the soup nicely. This is so good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
