I was originally going to make a pot of green chicken curry, but as usual, by the end of the day my mind had changed and I wanted a bowl of hearty and warm (and warm spicy) soup. So changed the intended use of the marinating chicken from a green curry to a pot of yellow curry soup.

I started off by placing the chicken (cut up boneless skinless chicken thighs) in a marinade of a hearty dollop of sour cream, a splash of fish sauce, garlic, and about a tablespoon of the curry powder from my coconut curry chicken.

Chicken Curry Soup
  1. 6 marinated chicken thighs (cubed)
  2. Olive oil for cooking
  3. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  4. 1 onion, chopped small
  5. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  6. 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  7. 1 tomato chopped
  8. 1 dried thai red chili
  9. 1 can coconut milk
  10. 1 cup chicken stock
  11. 1-2 tablespoons of homemade curry powder (see link below)
  12. Salt and pepper to taste
  13. Hearty pinch or two of fenugreek
  14. Juice of half a lime
A spice mix of
  1. 1/2 teaspoon ground corriander
  2. 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamon
  3. 1 teaspoon garam masala
  4. 1 tablespoon yellow curry
  5. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  6. 1/2 teaspoon tumeric
  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot and add the cumin seeds. Let cook, stirring occasionally, until the seeds begin to make popping sounds.
  2. Add the onion and saute until soft.
  3. Add the garlic and ginger and saute for a minute more.
  4. Add the chicken (dump the whole bag in, marinade and all) and the tomato, and cook until the chicken turns white.
  5. Add the spice mix, dried chili, S&P, stock, coconut milk, and 1 tablespoon of the homemade curry mix.
  6. Bring to a simmer and let simmer for about an hour with the lid on, stirring occasionally, adding more S&P and curry mix to taste.
  7. Add a pinch or two of the fenugreek and juice of the lime and stir to mix. Let simmer for another 15 minutes or so, then serve.
  1. I used a homemade curry masala in the marinade and in the soup. Recipe is in the Coconut Chicken Curry: 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
