As I mentioned on my post “Apples In A Basket“, too bad I couldn’t post the recipe right away, I failed to make the soup that was closed to my work recipe, due to that Suraj curry powder screwed up my soup’s taste. I had to buy other apples which were a different variety.

After getting the Jamaican style curry powder, I tried to make another one. For sure this recipe is more spicy than my work’s. So many recipes I found on internet most of them use milk, heavy cream, yogurt; I used coconut cream powder instead.

Some of you might not know what mulligatawny soup is. According to wikipedia, this is a type of Anglo-Indian soup. In its most general sense Anglo-Indian refers to any tangible or intangible entity with both British and Indian provenance or heritage. Though this page discusses a specific community, the term “Anglo-Indian” is sometimes used in the West more broadly to describe people who have mixedIndian and British ancestry. Mulligatawny is a literal translation from Tamil is “pepper water” (‘Millagu’ is pepper and ‘Thanni’ is water). Despite the name, pepper itself is not a vital ingredient.

Most recipes call for chicken and chicken broth, while I made a pesco-vegetarian version by using homemade shrimp vegetables stock. I love this soup. Fruity and savoury.

Ingredients:
4 cloves garlic, minced
