Chicken or Lamb Mulligatawny Soup, "no Soup for You, Next!&

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

This recipe was given to me from a friend years ago. She made it one time for a function and I thought it was incredible! She photo copied it out of her cookbook and some how I ended up washing it in my jeans pocket. But it worked when I made it from the very clean folded paper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute lightly (do not brown) the onion, carrot, celery and butter.
  2. Stir in the flour and curry powder and cook for about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour in the broth and bay leaf and simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. Next add the apples, rice, meat, salt, pepper, thyme, and lemon rind, simmer for 15 more minutes.
  5. Immediately before serving, stir in the hot cream or coconut milk.
  6. Remove bay leaf before serving.

This is wonderful soup!! I cubed a large chicken breast and cooked it in the soup. I also used 1/4 cup arbario rice, because that is all I had on hand. Will make this often!

Mmm... this was so good! I used beef cut up really small (it was sort of a mistake, but it worked out well.) I also upped the spices and added garlic because we like things spicy. I'm thinking about trying it with some rosemary and some different veggies... Gaa! My mouth is watering as I think about this soup!

I made this today as written except I used chicken soup base to make the broth. It was very good! I would make it again!
