Mulligatawny Recipe

I learned to cook and bake from my mom and grandmother, and always try to use fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. This is a delicious and satisfying soup which I make with leftover chicken, turkey and sometimes beef, pork or lamb. My family enjoys this on a crisp fall or winter day.—Mary Ann Marino, West Pittsburg, Pennsylvania

"This recipe won't become a family favorite; there are much tastier chicken soup recipes! It wasn't "Indian" enough for us."

"I made this as the recipe was written and tasted before adding anything else. this was a pretty bland soup. it needs more salt and spice added.

I also added half and half at the end to help boost flavor. there are better recipes for mulligatawny out there."
