Its not one of the simpler soups that we make daily at home because its actually considered as national soup that many don’t know I think. The history tells the name mulligatawny soup is given by the Britishers who once ruled our country and they loved this soup very much when they were here. I made a complete research to get the exact authentic recipe for this soup but there was not a single one that I can replicate. Finally found this soup made by my favourite author mulligatawny soup indian style / vegetarian mulligatawny soup

Mallika Badrinath and followed her recipe not exactly but tweaked a little with my own ideas. Its an indian style mulligatawny soup but a vegetarian version without any vegetables. Most of them I have seen do this with chicken and to bring it to creamy consistency they add flour and I feel this totally a different method that we can’t have it with rice. You can have this soup by adding more boiled rice to the soup itself and have it as a one bowl meal with pappads. You can even serve as one of the accompaniment for rice as we would have for lunch.
