Mulligatawny Soup – Regular & Thermomix recipes


BRRRR, how chilly is Sydney at the moment?  Perfect soup weather but even if you are a bit warmer than we are at the moment this soup is delicious and a meal in one pot.  In case you missed it I put this one up for the Your Weekly Feed link up this week and it’s really one that I think you may like.  It’s quick & easy and it’s a great way to use up any left over chicken you may have or just go and grab a BBQ chook and whip this up.

Cooktop method first then the Thermomix – either way it’s done and dusted in under 30 minutes!  Perfect with crusty bread for a filling lunch or dinner.

What you need:

1 BBQ chook (or a roast one)

2 Tbsp olive oil butter or ghee

1 brown onion, finely chopped

1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or finely chopped

2 carrots, finely chopped into rounds

2 Tbsp curry powder

1 C dried red lentils or 1 400g tin (whatever you have), rinsed & drained

1 litre chicken stock (or bone broth)

400 g can of diced tomatoes

5 – 6 leaves of spinach, baby spinach or silverbeet

Salt & pepper to taste

What you do:

In a large stockpot, heat the oil/butter/ghee and add the onion, ginger & carrots stirring for a few minutes until they are soft. Add the curry powder and stir through until fragrant (about a minute).

Add the stock, tomatoes and lentils, bring to the boil and then simmer, covered for 10 minutes.

While that is happening shred the chicken and chop the spinach leaves.

Add the chicken and spinach to the soup and stir through for about 2 minutes to heat through.

Season to taste and enjoy!

    This looks so delicious, perfect for a cold day like today. I’m loving a classic minestrone soup at the moment, best of all my boys are loving it too!

      Thank you – minestrone seems to be the only soup my girls will eat – because it’s got pasta I think!

    Yep, perfect for the current weather… I might slow cook mine so it fills the house with hunger making smells 😉

    Yum – it really hasn’t started to get that cold here in Canberra {which is kinda crazy, but everyone always has their heating on by the 25th of April}. I hope that it becomes soup weather soon.
