Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the onions for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the cumin and curry powder and cook for another min. Add the carrots and the stock, turn up the heat and bring to the boil, then simmer with the lid half on for 25-30 mins. Remove from the heat and blend to a purée. Season to taste.
  2. While the soup is cooking, make the snaps. Preheat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. On one side of each tortilla, rub over the garlic and oil, then sprinkle over some cumin and a little salt. Put them directly on the oven shelf and bake for 15 mins until crisp. Cool a little, then snap into large shards. Serve with the soup.
