Mulligatawny Blend

5/5 from 1 Customers

Mulligatawny derives from the Tamil ‘molo tunny’, a spicy South Indian dhal. It’s a really satisfying and hearty meal in a bowl, and really useful at this time of year because you can use pretty much any Christmas leftovers (veg or turkey) to make a special seasonal version of this British classic!
