   Cool slightly.  Puree in a blender or food processor
   until smooth and return to the pot.  Bring the puree
   to a simmer, then reduce the heat. Stir in the curry
   powder, garlic powder, turmeric, lemon juice, and
   mint. Simmer for another 3 to 5 minutes until the
   flavors have mingled. Serve hot with a sprinkle of
   chopped peppers.
