Mulligatawny soup is a very flavorsome soup originating from India.  Translated from Tamil it literally means pepper water.  I was introduced to this soup by a dear foodie friend.  She makes this soup so beautifully and I love the infusion of flavours and enjoy the combination of tanginess and sweetness.  This is so good on a cold winters day!
