NOTES : As the story goes, mulligatawny soup was first prepared by local
cooks in southern India for their English masters. The literal meaning
"pepper water", betrays its delicate flavor. This version of the soup is
so hearty we called it stew. Two forms of coriander are used in this
recipe. Coriander seed is available in most grocery stores whole or ground.
It is used extensively in Indian cooking and is an important ingredient in
curry powder. Aromatic coriander leaves resemble parsley in appearance and
often are used to garnish Indian dishes. Also called cilantro or Chinese
parsley, these leaves are sold in Indian, Oriental and Mexican markets.
