Heinz Mulligatawny Soup
Advantages: Far more interesting soup than tomato flavoured
Disadvantages: Can sometimes be a touch too hot
Mulligatawny soup is such an interesting and delicious tasting soup but it is not universally heard of or enjoyed. I however enjoy eating it and relish the spice of the soup.
The soup is in effect a curry in a soup! That would be how I'd describe it to someone! The soup is in a tin can with a ring pull lid which makes it easier to open. As soon as you open the tin the extremely strong smell of spices/curry hits you and almost makes your mouth water the smell is so strong. As you pour the soup out into the saucepan you can see the soup and its contents more clearly. It is a bright brown colour (I would say a cross between tomato soup and oxtail soup) and is medium in consistency. In the soup there are grains of rice which can sometimes be fairly mushy when heated up but still retain a nice texture. You will also see small flecks of beef, not big chunks, just small pieces. There are also a lot of spices mixed in and if you peer closely at the soup you can see a lot of different types of spices - they just look like tiny dots within the soup.
The taste of the soup is very strong, it is very hot on a spice level and can sometimes be a little too overpowering. I like spicy foods but this can sometimes take you to a point where you feel you can't have any more. If I have a cold drink by the side of me I am ok. As soon as I have a mouthful of water I'm fine to eat more soup. It is a hot warming soup though and definitely not for people who don't like curry or hot foods.
This Heinz variety costs 85p in Tescos and is a similar cost in other supermarkets. In a 400g can there are 220 calories and 7.2g of fat which is not bad at all for people who are watching their weight.
I always remember Blanche from Coronation Street used to tell Deidre she liked Mulligatawny soup and I can still hear the way she said it as well!
Summary: A great tasting soup which has a real kick to it.
