Pumpkin & coconut soup

1 x 170g pkt Continental South Indian Curry with Roasted Spices Flavour Base
1 kg butternut pumpkin, peeled, deseeded, coarsely chopped
750ml (3 cups) water
185ml (3/4 cup) coconut cream
1 tablespoon coconut cream, extra, to serve
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
Combine the flavour base, pumpkin and water in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
Place the pumpkin mixture in the jug of a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan and add the coconut cream. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until heated through.
Ladle the soup among serving bowls. Drizzle with a little extra coconut cream and sprinkle with chives. Serve immediately.
