My Mulligatawny Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This is an adaption from a couple of different recipes and has become a favourite of ours. I use skim evaporated milk with a couple of drops of coconut essence instead of coconut milk. This is a warming healthy soup, with lots of spicy flavour.

Very good recipe. My wife and I have been searching the globe for the perfect Mulligatawny soup recipe, and we think that this one is our favorite so far. We were spoiled by an Indian restaurant in Lincoln, NE, but we now live in CA and they make it completely different here. Thank you for getting us so much closer to the perfect bowl of soup!
