Mulligatawny Soup

Recipe by Noo

One of my favourite soups. I used to make gallons of this while working at a very classy country hotel; everybody loved it. I hope that you do too.

Good soup! This is my first time to try Mulligatawny soup but I really enjoyed the flavor. I do not have a scale so I used GourmetSleuth which converts the weights of specific ingredients into other measures. Here is what I used for the ingredients listed with weight measure: 3/4 cup chopped onion, 1 garlic clove, 4 T butter, 1/4 cup flour (GourmetSleuth actually converted to 1/2 cup flour but I thought that would be too much), 1/4 cup apple, 2 teaspoons ground ginger (converted to 4 teaspoons but I reduced), 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut. I sent an e-mail to the chef and she stated that the rice, while traditional, was really more of a garnish. Since I was just making this for me, I left out the rice. Thank you for posting the recipe.
