Curried Peanut Soup


i tried this recipe once at a potluck and fell in love with it. it had been made by a friend who had lived in kenya for a couple of years. searched for the recipe for nearly 15 years when i finally stumbled upon it on the internet.

Time: 80 minutes


  • saute first 5 ingredients in a large saucepan
  • add remaining ingredients and saute , stirring , 8-10 minutes over medium-low heat
  • mix the soup base ingredients together to make a paste
  • add to other ingredients
  • mix , cover and simmer over very low heat for 1 hour , stirring occasionally
  • whisk buttermilk into hot soup before serving
  • for topping: slice bananas of an inch thick and fry in butter
  • add remaining ingredients and fry another minute
  • spoon into soup bowls
  • this is best served in very small servings as it is very rich
  • you may get even more servings
  • but i love having this by myself the next day , and can never make enough
