    Hi All
    As title suggests, am wondering if a little curry powder in the soup is ok? Was having a veg soup this evening and the smell was making me gag! :sigh:

    Thanks

    as long as it contains no salt then it's ok. I was having curry powder and realised there was salt in it so I don't have t now :-(

    Afraid there is salt in it, it'll make you retain water :( Have you tried dried chilli flakes?

    I have used a sprinkle of curry powder from the start it is yummy... i dont have enough to cause salt probs....
    it was a CDC on here that recommended it as a seasoning like salt and pepper.
    I use chilli powder too

    Aw drat, and it was so nice with the curry powder in too. Will try the chilli flakes and try find a curry powder with no salt. (Does that exist i wonder?)

    Thanks everyone for your replies, much appreciated!

    Hi

    No to tabasco as many things added to it.

    Re curry powder official guidance is 1g to a pack, however, it comes with a warning that it can cause hunger in some.

    Hi Linda
    Thanks for that, really only a sprinkle i'm using, will weigh to make sure. Wasn't overly hungry after it but it did make the soup nice and tasty!!

    I think the soups definately need something added to them, have you tried fresh herbs? (Are we allowed these... lol)...
