Mulligatawny Soup


(Norsk versjon, følg linken: Mulligatawny suppe)

 Mulligatawny soup is an English soup heavily influenced by the Indian cuisine. The name is said to originate from Tamil and can be translated as “pepper-water”

This soup, however, is so much more than pepper-water. The curry-broth-apple-coconut combo is to die for. I think it was
originally a Tamil sauce, and not a stand alone soup.

Nope, do not take my word for it. Try it yourself! Dead easy and this recipe yields a huge pot of warming, tasty, exotic soup.
