This recipe came from an Estonian woman who used to work with us at the Hole in the Wall in Bath. She had moved all over Europe during the war, finally ending up in Bath. This always seemed such a strange combination for an Eastern European to come up with. But she was a very good cook, and this was one of her best recipes.


  • 25 g/1 oz butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • ½


Melt the butter in a pan and sweat the onion for 5 minutes. Stir in the curry powder and cook for a further 30 seconds or so. Add the stock, bananas, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Process the soup in a processor or blender and stir in the cream. Taste and adjust seasonings, then return the soup to the pan and reheat to serve.
