A British bastardization of Indian curry.  Some people put green apples in it, but we think that’s a little weird.

  1. Addendum. Yes. Put some cut-up green apples in it. It *is* weird. Try it. It’s worth it. Thanks for the off-hand *tip.*

  2. I had been sick in bed with the flu for the entire past week when my daughter brought this soup home to me yesterday. I felt better immediately. Today I woke up at 4:00AM, scraped the windshields of all the cars in my parking lot, ran 13 miles, benched a personal best, and held up the back bumper of my neighbor’s pickup bare-handed while he changed his tire in sub-zero weather. I ate the last of the soup for lunch and was able to read Joyce’s “Ulysses” in its entirety while doing so in about 40 minutes. I didn’t need my readers. I credit it all to the soup. This soup has made me taller and better looking.

  3. It’s hard to pick a favorite – but this one is pretty amazing!! What kind of deal would you make me on a whole pot!!! 🙂

  4. This soup is AMAZING! A MUST have!

  5. My mother ordered this soup, but let me have a taste. It was wonderful. I would have gladly traded my potato-leek. I don’t believe I’ve ever had Mulligatawny before, but I loved this recipe. I wish I knew exactly what your secret herbs and spices were because I’d love to reproduce it at home. We spent some time trying to identify which curry spices were in it. I was guessing coriander and turmeric, but probably other spices as well. I guess I’ll just have to come back again.

  6. This is super-delicious, one of my favorite things to eat. Do it!

  7. I'm definitely stopping in to try some of this soup the next time I get to town. It sounds delightfully different from any version I've tasted. Personally, I like Mulligatawny with apples – any crisp, tart variety – and in a thin, clear broth with tomato chunks. I've definitely never used mushrooms or cream in mine at home. I can't wait to try it!
