This dish (sadly no picture as I'm lazy) has entered my culinary pantheon after the second time I made it. It combines a plethora of Indian spices, some of them (like Kala Namak, Amchoor and Black Cardamom) I had to mail order from India after futile searches in Israel...

Tonight's dinner was surprisingly delicious. Only when we started eating did we realize it was so amazingly awesome. This accounts for the shitty iPhone picture.

This soup is sweet, spicy and savory and 100% vegan. The cashew cream actually works better than dairy cream as it's more nourishing and mixes better with the Indian spices. And it's super easy to prepare - all it really takes is a good food processor, the spice mixtur...
