FORESTHILL FRIENDSHP CLUB RECIPE
Friendship Club President, Roberta Dunnicliff, gave me this recipe for a slow cooker Mulligatawny Soup. Don’t you love the name? Mulligatawny is an Indian soup. The name Mulligatawny means “pepper water” and the curry in the recipe is the particular “pepper” ingredient. This soup is perfect for cold, rainy, overcast days. Adding some spice to our lives. Mulligatawny Soup was one of the eleven soups Friendship Club had at its potluck November meeting.
