I first tasted Mulligatawny out of curiosity after watching that notorious soup Nazi episode of Seinfeld. It’s been my favorite soup ever since!
The name of this Indian soup translates to “pepper water ”. And for good reason. This is one spicy soup! Because it contains apples, I think of this as a fall soup. And in continuing that theme, my version contains sweet potatoes. Though really, I would eat this soup any time of the year. Chunks of chicken breast, gala apples, sweet potatoes, carrots, bell peppers, onions & celery swim in a broth made both sweet and spicy from curry, ginger, mango chutney, tomato paste and red pepper flakes! It’s one of those soups that has just the right amount of everything.
