In a pan, melt the butter and add the diced onions. Fry the onions on a low heat for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally so they don’t brown
Stir in the mild madras curry powder and allow to cook for a further 2 minutes
Place the peas in a pot and add a litre of cold water. Bring to the boil and cover with a lid. Gently simmer for 5 minutes and then drain
Place the peas with the curried onions in a blender or food processor and blitz into a smooth purée
Pass the purée through a fine sieve (you can use the back of the ladle to gently push the purée through the sieve)
Put the purée in a clean saucepan and add the cream, salt, sugar and Tabasco to taste and bring to the boil. Serve with some warm crusty bread
