      Sounds wonderful and filling yet light too. You had me at chicken and coconut, then again whenever I see you have published a new hub, I immediately become hungry and get out my grocery list, I am sure by now my neighbors must think I am running an underground Indian restaurant with all the smells of curry, coconut and spices.

      This sounds really good. We live where there's lots and snow and it gets very cold. Coming in from the cold it's always nice to have a nice hot soup. Your soup sounds very interesting, voted up.
