2) Once the vegetables are soft remove the lid and add the vadouvan spice. Continue to cook the mixture for another 5 minutes.
3) Now add the coconut milk and water and bring to a simmer. Simmer the ingredients for another 20 minutes.
4) Transfer the contents of the pot to a blender and puree until smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pass through a fine mesh sieve. Either serve immediately or chill and reserve for later use.
