Seeing as I had so many tomatoes I attempted this recipe.  Some of the instructions written above seemed odd.  After roasting, I put all the tomatoes into the pot -- don't know why they had to be set aside.  I used a combination of homemade turkey and vegetable stocks; 1 cup of the veg stock had some curry in it.  All the stock went in at once.  I don't have a blender so I left it chunky, mashed it a bit with the potato masher.  it was a different consistency and only needed 1/8 tsp of salt at the end.  (My boyfriend added more to his bowl.)  We ate this one warm too.  And I ate almost all of the tomato skins this time, they didnt go as hard and spiky  as the chef's batch.  My basil plant was not very leafy, so I left out the basil but floated a sprig of oregano and one basil stem in the pot. The touch of curry was amazing!  I would make this again. - Rosemary
