The origin of this dish begins in India with the addition of curry as an ingredient. The word translates to "pepper water." The recipe for mulligatawny varied greatly over the years and I couldn't locate an original version. As the recipe migrated through the British Isles, meat was added to the pot.
This one will be making regular appearances on the rotation!
