Mulligatawny is an English soup with origins in Indian cuisine. The name originates from the Tamil words miḷagāy (Tamil: மிளகாய் ‘chilli’) or miḷagu (மிளகு ‘pepper’), and taṇṇi (தண்ணி, ‘water’). It is related to the soup rasam. Due to its popularity in England during the British Raj, it was one of the few items of Indian cuisine that found common mention in the literature of the period.
This Cider Onion Soup is a twist on traditional French Onion Soup. It uses hard apple cider instead of white wine, whole grain bread instead of baguette, and a bloomy-rind cheese instead of Gruyere.
