Spicy Mulligatawny Soup



Mulliga what? That's what I was wondering when Michael said he was making this for dinner a few nights ago. Google told me that mulligatawny means 'pepper water', which doesn't sound too appetizing. But don't let that fool you, this soup is soo yummy! We got the recipe from Michael's mom & it's a perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I could eat this every week. The apple and chutney really make the recipe. I hope you all will try it!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped, peeled Gala apple (about 1 medium)
  • 3/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup diced bell pepper
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 - 14.5 cans chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup Major Gray's chutney (found in mustard aisle)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste

Directions

  1. Cut chicken into thirds and saute in a large pan with the olive oil. When cool, use a fork to shred, set aside.
  2. Add apple, onion, carrot, celery and bell pepper in same pan and saute over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in flour, curry, ginger and crushed red pepper. Cook 1 minute. Stir in broth, chutney, and tomato paste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add chicken and simmer 8 minutes or until heated through.

Mulligatawny is one of those words I have heard of, and could make a terrible attempt to define (with lots of hand waving) but didn't actually know what it meant before. This looks, and sounds, great. Mulligatasty ;)

This definitely looks yummy! I saw a mulligatawny soup recipe while browsing at a bookstore but never paid attention to it & thought that mulligatawny is some kind of veggie. Haha!

Grace said...

is it wrong that i often enjoy foods simply because their names are fun to say. i think mulligatawny soup falls into that category. mulligatawny mulligatawny mulligatawny.

This sounds fantastic! Pepper water does sound interesting :). After reading the ingredients, I know this is something I'll have to try. The apple really has me curious! I've yet to try apples in soup, I think I'm missing out :).

Such a long title name for this recipe! No matter what's the name, it looks absolutely inviting. Making soup with apple always my favourite and it's quite a unique flavour too. Thanks for sharing.
