Mulligatawny Soup

IMG_9029 (3).JPG

Mulligatawny Soup - sounds a bit exotic, but is also hearty and that's what we often like now that soup season is upon us. (Make it without chicken, and using vegetable broth, for a vegetarian treat.)

I'm sharing the recipe I use from the Podleski Sisters (aka Looneyspoons) Crazy Plates (1999). I have just recently acquired Greta's newest "baby" - Yum and Yummer - and will look forward to trying some dishes from there. Not only does the new book have photos of each recipe, but a link to a "how to" video - for each and every recipe!

Singapore Noodles with Pork and Pepper

Singapore Noodles - the descriptor seems designed to make things seem exotic. Probably no one in Singapore has ever heard of this dish.

Was it just a shorthand descriptor implying that the dish contained curry? Did "marketers" reckon that North American diners (at one time) would be more likely to eat "Singapore" Noodles than "curry noodles"? Who knows. 

In the KB kitchen this dish, by any name, is a favourite.

Curried Chicken Soup

Here's a quick curry soup. Although curry may evoke images of India, apart from using curry, I am not sure this would get a lot of check-marks as an Indian dish - but it's still yummy!

The original recipe used the term "madras curry",  however, "the name 'Madras Curry' is not used in India, but was invented by restaurants in Britain." (Wikipedia) I use my own curry mixture - try it! - and add more heat if you wish.

Curried Cauliflower Soup

This recipe is from TLC - The Looneyspoons Collection Part of the Podleski Brand is a divine sense of humour. Technically, they call this recipe "Melancauli Baby". 

As I write this, the cost of cauliflower is through the roof(!) but if you splurge and buy one, you can make this fabulous soup (8 servings, 142 calories each). You won't regret it. (For a full meal, add cooked chicken or turkey.)
