OK Kiddies, now that we all have our priorities straight, this is what I did tonight..first, we had a big, old, stewin hen, that I did yesterday, took all the meat off, and continued cooking it down,with the bones, skin, etc(dunt esk)(about the etc)!!This gave me about 4 qts of a really great stock, of which I took one qt, and with other things, made a soup, that was spectacular(according to my Lady Wife!) Here tis...
Simmer the onion, ginger & garlic at LOW heat, in a pot with a heavy
bottom(anybody out there with that problem after all the Christmas
goodies????) Sprinkle the curry powder over this, and then add the yam
or sweet potato chunks, and cook on low for about twenty minutes....pour
in half of the chicken stock, and let simmer for another twenty...cut up
the tofu into one inch squares, and add that to the mixture...add more
stock, cook another ten minutes and taste, for salt, add some if needed,
then add the chopped peppers, and simmer for another 15 minutes...throw
in the rest of the stock, add water if necessary, so it wont be too
thick, add the half cup of shells, or whatever macaroni takes your
fancy, and let this cook until the macaroni is medium cooked, then add
the chicken and the garam masala, check to correct the seasoning, and
cook for about ten minutes longer. It will be thick, and really good
soup, serve with hot rolls, Marie made Irish Soda bread! Fantastic!!!
Add Calvin's chile powder if it aint hot enuf....I did!
