Mulligatawny Stew

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by nutri-mom

A sweet mild curry lentil stew with an apple and tomato base. This is a great seasonal recipe for August and September with fresh, local apples and tomatoes. This is my own version of Mulligatawny Stew, but is inspired by a recipe Jamie V. got while traveling in India.

This is the best Mulligatawny Stew ever. I have a favorite Indian Restaurant in my neigborhood and have been trying to figure out how they make their soup. This is the closest recipe to it I have found. Lovely, healthy and fragrant. Many of the recipes for this soup aren't healthy and have way too much fat in them. I am going to make this soup often and serve with fresh Naan. Highly recommended. Thank you nutrimom!
