    mersaydees's Note:

    A great recipe based on one from Michael Roberts book, What's For Dinner? Per the intro, "Mulligatawny, the soup of chicken, apples, and lentils, was almost a cliche in Continental restaurants a few years ago. Here chicken thighs cooked in the soup rather than the usual little bits of chicken added as garnish turn it into dinner. Serve hot bastmati or Texmati rice to spoon into the soup to give it even more texture and substance. A plate of sliced papaya and avocado with some lemon juice and walnut oil spooned over will complement the mulligatawny perfectly."

      This is a great recipe and rivals anything I have eaten at Indian restaraunts. As curry powders are quite variable in their degree of spice, I suggest adding just 1/2 of the curry powder and no cayenne pepper while braising the chicken. Then about 10 minutes into boiling the stock, taste and add curry powder until you have the flavor you like. Then add cayenne to adjust the heat if needed. Also, I used apple juice and salted butter as I did not have cider or unsalted butter.

      Definitely tasty. I left the thights whole, but would suggest that it would be easier to eat if they were chopped down into smaller pieces with a cleaver. I garnished it with Greek yoghurt and fresh corriander. Very enjoyable!
