Recipe by hlkljgk

This is the vegetarian version of an east Indian soup. I find it very comforting with rich, complex flavor.

Easy cheap recipe! Only changes I made- didn't have a potato, used an entire can of coco milk and no shredded coconut, and added some extra water and 3/4 c of lentils (HAVE to have lentils in mulligatawny soup).
