Mulligatawny [ˈmɐlɨɡəˈtɑːni] (listen (help·info)) is an English soup with origins in Indian cuisine. The name originates from the Tamil words mullaga/milagu and thanni and can be translated as "pepper-water" (மிளகு தண்ணீர்).
The original version of this soup consisted of a broth from lentils, fried onions and curry powder. Today it normally designates a thickened soup that is strongly spiced with curry powder and nutmeg. Often, strips of vegetables, nuts and rice are added, sometimes also port wine.
The original Indian dish was not a soup, but a sauce that was served with rice.
