I was really hoping this would be good. It has so many great ingredients. Found it to taste like a sweet Campbells vegetable soup. Yuck. Did I miss something? Followed the recipe exactly.

The only thing this soup has in common with Mulligatawny is the curry powder. I'm sure it's very tasty, but to call it that is a misnomer.

This soup is outstanding. I've made it many times and it's such a crowd pleaser. I followed the directions the first time and thought it tasted very bland. Then I added 2T Garam Masala and it was great. The last 5 times I made it with the following changes and it is definately soup nazi worthy: 10 cups water, 8 cups chicken broth, 1 cup lentils, 1 t curry powder, 1 T Garam Masala. Then after 4 hours I add 1 t nutmeg, 1 more T Garam Masala and 2 cans of coconut milk. Then cook another 30-60 minutes. This keeps great in fridge for 5 days and tastes even better, so it's great to make in advance for company.

This is a great soup if you eliminate the 16 cups of water and just use 8 cups of chicken broth total for the liquid. It makes it much more flavorful. I also eliminate the egg plant and the nuts because I don't like them, but that's a personnal preference. I eat this soup an hr. before going to the gym and it improves my performance. Thanks CountryLady for posting this recipe.

This was really good. I was concerned about halfway through the cooking time when it seemed that the broth was too thin and not reducing. So, I threw in some lentils and brown rice. I then let the soup cook a little longer than the directions called for. I didn't have the red peppers or cashews, but substituted a can of fire roasted tomatoes for the peppers. The flavors are really nice, though I wouldn't mind a bit more spice. Adding the rice and lentils really thickened up the broth.
