There is no true substitution for curry leaves. I would suggest that you either leave them out or try to find dried leaves. You could add a bay leaf instead but again, this will not give the soup the same flavour profile as the curry leaves.
p.s. you may want to bookmark that link, which is a link to Cook's Thesaurus, as it's a good source for substitutions. Cheers!
Made this soup for tea tonight but without the curry leaves which where not available at our local store. Found this soup to be tasty and very filling. Hopefully it frezzes well as we have plenty left over. Next time I will use dry curry leaves which I know I can get from our local Asian food shop. The question is how many dry leaves to use?
I used curry suace mix tablets instead of the leaves and got a great flavor. I am sure the leaves would have helped. I noticed the lentils took about 40 minutes to cook. not 20. Really good. I added cerrano peppers and loved the spice!
Thanks again Rouxbe for another great recipe!
