Hoping someone can tell if this is possible and how please?

I've not done it, but think it would work. Maybe blend it with some coconut milk?

Add liquid. (Water, milk, coconut milk, whatever.) Maybe more oil.

Add more of yesterday's seasoning.


Deploy stick blender.

Adjust liquid.

Throw in coriander (or other suitable) leaves.

Consume with ill concealed glee.

Thanks @RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie @PerditaProvokesEnmity

I will: remove some lentils and the chicken chunks, heat and add some alpro coconut milk drink, season ,blend, adjust and re add the reserved lentils and now shredded chicken and coriander. Top with a some Greek yoghurt ( I have a Greek yoghurt addiction)

Consume greedily.

Sounds good! Though decorating the yoghurt with the coriander will be prettier.

(Definitely exclude meat or fish from the blending stage. I made that mistake once - never again ...)

Best soup ever!

I was wondering how it went!

That looks remarkably like the dhal I made last week. (There was none left to make soup with ...)

Really glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks @PerditaProvokesEnmity your guidance was invaluable.

It was even nicer as a soup than a curry I think...

I've always felt that there are few better things in the world than leftovers. Lentil soup is only second to last night's pizza for breakfast ...

" last night's pizza for breakfast ."

@PerditaProvokesEnmity you're so right.

I deliberately left some last time we had them, but DH (aka effing swine) ate it
