  1. Heat half of the oil and half of the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion, garlic, ginger and garam masala. Cover and gently fry for 8 mins, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add the parsnips and stock, stir well and cover. Simmer for 25 mins or until the parsnips are tender.
  3. Cool, add the cream, whizz with a Dualit 700W Hand Blender, and season.
  4. Melt the remaining oil and butter in a large pan, add the breadcrumbs, chilli flakes and chestnuts and fry until golden brown. Stir in the parsley.
  5. When you're ready to serve, warm the soup, ladle into mugs and top with the crumb.
