Mulligatawny Soup I
This is my second time making this soup, and it is always amazing. My household is only made up for 2 people, but I always make enough for 8-10. We eat it for dinner (twice, since we always go back for seconds!) and save it for the next few days. I haven't yet included the apple because I've been discouraged by my partner, but I will sneak one in next time. The only other change I make is to add 1/2 cup french lentils and 1 teaspoon of cumin. I think the cumin is essential to get the real depth of flavour that this soup deserves. Delicious.
UPDATED: Have now made this soup around 7 times. I added in the apple and my partner and I both LOVED it (and I really dislike cooked apples.) It does not make the soup taste sweet or sour, but provides a very unique, mild tartness to the soup that helps enhance all the other flavours, much the way adding cream does. Do not hesitate to use both the apples and the cream - they really, really do make a difference to the final product! Excellent dish!
