Last week was the celebration of Diwali, the Festival of Lights. The origin of this celebration is in India – it celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, or of good over evil.
It’s one of the most major holidays in Indian culture.
And this means that we need to spice things up a bit.
I was asked by Patak’s Canada to come up with a fun Fall recipe to share with you all. And because the wind is blowing, the leaves are falling, and the rain just. won’t. stop…. I thought, I need a good bowl of soup.
This soup was born on a day when I was feeling a bit closed in by the weather. I needed a quick lunch that wasn’t going to be boring. And I wanted it to be easy.
I had leftover roast potatoes and carrots in the fridge. I had a can of coconut milk. And I had a jar of Patak’s Hot Curry Paste.
I’ll be very honest, friends: hot means HOT. It means, take it easy… trust your tastebuds… and add more as needed.
But this soup was a quick, easy, and spicy way to warm up a cold Autumn day.
- 1 tbsp of Patak's Hot Curry Paste
- 3 cups of roasted (or boiled/cooked) potatoes, quartered
- 1 cup of cooked carrots (sliced)
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 can Blue Dragon Coconut Milk
- 1 Tetra Pack of Vegetable Broth
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- In a large pot, melt coconut oil
- Add onion and cook until slightly limp
- Add Hot Curry Paste and cook for 2-3 minutes to release the full flavour
- Add remaining ingredients to pot
- Bring to a boil and then simmer for 1/2 hour
- Blend soup in food processor or blender
- Serve with bread or naan!
- A little bit of plain yogurt or sour cream makes a lovely garnish in this dish!
This soup has a really lovely kick to it. The Hot curry paste is definitely the strongest of the Patak’s pastes I’ve tried. I love coconut, and the milk lightens the spice and mellows out the flavours.
A little dollop of plain yogurt or sour cream makes for a lovely garnish.
The next time you find leftover potatoes in your fridge, chuck ’em in a pot and whip up a Curried Cream of Potato soup! It freezes beautifully, and is far more interesting that what you’d normally have for lunch.

Your soup looks so yum, I should try it on a cold day!
Thank you, Helene! That means a lot coming from a foodie like you!
All of your soup recipes always look so delicious. This one is no exception.
Thank you, Melanie! I have a definite love of soup. If only I could convince Mr. Suburble that it counts as an entire dinner (instead of a starter). 😛
Tara, I LOVE anything curry and it’s definitely soup season here. I can’t wait to try your recipe!
Thank you so much, Marilyn! 🙂
What a delicious recipe. I agree: the curry adds such a great flavor.
I’m a curry addict. I can’t help myself. I find that soup is almost ALWAYS better with a bit of spice! 🙂
