Mulligatawny Soup

Print Friendly and PDF
This classic Anglo-Indian soup is a wonderful creamy blend of spices and seasonings. Mulligatawny soup was featured in a Seinfeld episode as Kramer's favorite in the "Soup Natzi" episode. This recipe reminds me of the good times Michelle and I had at our favorite Indian restaurant at our regular Saturday lunches when she lived in San Diego. I miss that.

6 chicken thighs, skinless
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, diced
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 T curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
5 cups chicken broth
1 cup whipping cream or plain yogurt
Cilantro, finely chopped

Place chicken, onion, carrots, celery, potatoes, curry, cumin, salt, pepper and chicken broth in a crock pot. Cook on low for 8-10 hours (or High for 4-5 hours). Remove bones from chicken. Set chicken aside, to be added later. In a blender or food processor puree the soup in batches and return to crock pot. Stir in cream and cooked chicken. Cook on high for 30 min until heated. Garnish with cilantro.
