Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 potato peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry paste
  • 1 cauliflower (about 2 lb/1 kg)
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 cups 18% cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 cup red onion cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

Method

In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add onion, potato and curry paste; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, trim cauliflower and chop coarsely. Add to pan along with stock; bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly.

In batches, pur?cauliflower mixture until smooth. Strain through sieve into clean saucepan. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate, uncovered, until cold. Cover and store for up to 2 days. Reheat to proceed.) Stir in cream, salt and hot pepper sauce; heat over low heat, stirring often, until hot. Ladle into warmed small soup bowls or cups. Garnish with onion and coriander.
