Our family's favourite soup is this thick curry soup with the sweetness of butternut . This amount of soup must be cooked in at least a 10lt pot. Serve it with lots of warm garlic bread. A great accompaniment is Egyptian Dukkah. Sprinkle over liberally. Bacon can be substituted with any left-over smoked pork.
My father-in-law makes this delicious 'concoction' with chillies and onions that they preserve and eat with most savoury dishes. It will really spice-up sandwiches as well. The amount of heat you get depends on the type of chilli you use, and the amount can easily be adjusted accordingly.
