Pumpkin soup with Coconut Milk, Lemon and Curry


I have to start by saying that this soup has a very unusual taste. (Unusual, but good :-)) Also, it is very light and can be served either hot or cold. As you can see from the below picture, the soup was prepared as a part of a multi-course dinner, but, since it is interesting enough on its own, I prefer writing about it separately.

  1. Cut the carrot (make medium-sized rings)
