Mulligatawny: the literal transalation is from the tamil words milagu (black pepper) & thaneer (water), it remains one of the classic Anglo Indian offerings that came out of pre-independent India.
It may be inferred from the original spice combination that it arose from milagu rasam (a watery broth made with coriander, cumin, & pepper with a tamarind base usually paired with plain rice and a toasted papad. the word Rasam itself is derived from the sanskrit Rasa which means 'essence') but over the times It may have been thickened up & vegetables added to make this into a thick soup.

I'm looking forward to seeing how you make it. I've love the ones I've made, but I'm sure your soup will excel!
