Mulligatawny Soup

Makes about 1 gallon and should feed a family of 8 – possibly twice. 

1/2 c + 2 TB Butter
3/4 c Flour
2 medium onions, chopped
1 1/2-2 T curry powder
1 TB Salt
1/2 TB Pepper
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
2 TB Sugar
3 Chicken breasts
2 L Chicken stock
3/4 c Jasmine or Basmati rice
2 c 33% whipping cream
2 Apples, diced
1 Red Pepper, diced

Cut chicken breasts into strips and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper (the 1 T & 1/2 T salt and pepper are for in the soup – not for baking the chicken) and bake on parchment paper on a pan for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Cut into 1/4″ coins when they are done.

Cook onions in 2 TB butter and onions in frying pan until onions are translucent. Add curry powder, salt, pepper, cloves and sugar and cook for a few minutes.

Cook 1/2 c butter and 3/4 c flour in a large pot until golden. Add 2L of chicken stock, the 3/4 c rice and the onions and spices from the pan. Simmer about 15 minutes until rice is cooked.

Add 2 c whipping cream, diced apples and diced peppers.

Simmer on low for another 20 minutes. Serve with warm Naan Bread or whole wheat toast.
