To serve


  1. In a large pot set over medium heat, melt the butter, then add the leek. Sauté until soft but not brown, about 5 minutes (lower the heat if necessary). Add garlic, Madras curry powder, turmeric, cumin, salt and cook, stirring for about 1 minute, until spices are fragrant. Add vegetables and chicken broth. Stir, scraping the bottom of the pot to incorporate spices and cooking juices. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are very tender.
  2. Puree the soup using a blender. Stir in the cream and season with salt, to taste.
  3. To serve, top each portion with a drizzle of cream, pomegranate seeds, and fresh coriander leaves.
