Vegetable Mulligatawany Soup

Mulligatawny is a type of Anglo-Indian soup. It is a very tasty and filling soup and full of proteins. It tastes like rasam and very flavourful. This soup is normally made with rice and noodles and chicken and meat.


Yellow lentils (toor dal) - 1 1/4 cup
French cut beans - handful
Peas - 1/2 cup
Sweet corn kernel - 1/4 cup
Carrot - 1 finely julianed or grated
Potato - 1/2 medium potato chopped
Ginger - 1" piece finely chopped
Garlic - 1 pod finely chopped
Garam Masala - 3 tsp
Turmeric powder - 2 tsp
Green chillies - 2-3
Salt to taste
Ghee /butter - 1 tsp
Fresh Coriander leaves
Jeera (cumin seeds) - 1tsp
Tamarind - a small ball


In a small pressure pan or cooker put the dal, vegetables and all the other ingredients in the cooker. Pour in aprox 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water in it and cook in the pressure cooker giving 2 whistles.If your having a big cooker u can keep the daal and the vegetables in seperate containers and cook. Later u can mix them together in a pan adding all the masalas.I prefer making it in the cooker itself as its much easier.Once the daal is cooked, off the gas and let the pressure be released.
Now check the consistency of the soup if it is too thick, add 1-2 cups of water as needed and let it boil well. Add a spoon of butter or ghee to the soup and mix well.Garnish with coriander leaves before serving..
