Before trying this recipe, I'd never had Mulligatawny soup and wasn't sure what to expect. I was a bit apprehensive when I saw how thick the mixture got after adding the flour but later realized there was nothing to worry about. This is the absolute best soup I've ever had! I followed the recipe "as is" except that I decided to double it since I wanted to use whole veggies (as opposed to 1/4 cups) and had lots of leftover rice from the day before. The recipe does not specify, but I used green apple, which added a fantastic punch to the flavor! This was so delicious and so easy. I can't wait to make it again! Read More

I'd never made this kind of soup before either but it is now my new favorite! I had to make a few changes: didn't have any mace so left it out; used chicken broth instead of beef broth; added 1/2 c. uncooked white rice and let it cook in the soup about 20 minutes. Delicious thank you for the recipe. Read More

Awesome! I used margarine;-) (please excuse watching the cholesterol) and substituted egg whites for chicken which I added in the end. Excellent taste! Read More

The soup tastes great but this recipe is frustrating. Next time I won't be chopping the chicken up until I puree the veggies. This time everything got put into the magic bullet together because I didn't have an hour to pick the chicken out. I also used extra curry and cloves for flavor but otherwise this is great. Read More

Really delicious. I couldn't find mace at the market and used chicken stock instead. Had this with a grilled cheese sandwich on pita bread and had a yummy dinner Read More

Love it! I added 1 cube of Vermont curry paste med. hot; and 1/2 cup coconut milk. I also shredded the chicken and omitted the rice. Heavenly! Served it in a bread bowl. The med. hot curry does not make it spicy just flavorful I don't do spicy.:) Also make sure to mix your flour into a rouge before stiring it into your soup. Enjoy! Read More

Easy to make and tasty. Did not have mace. I looked it up as I was not sure what is it and it comes from nutmeg so you can sub that or all spice. I added chicken broth and did not puree veggies at end. I really enjoyed this soup. Read More
