Mulligatawny Soup is a traditional curry soup originating in India. There are many different versions and variations, but our Slow Cooker Mulligatawny Soup is made in a slow cooker and includes chicken, vegetables, lentils, apples, spices, coconut milk, and brown Jasmine rice. It’s amazingly flavorful, creamy, and hearty. All it needs is a wheat pita for soaking up that liquid golden goodness!

This soup just gets better the longer it sits, so it would be great to take along for a next-day lunch. Just be sure to make a big enough batch to have leftovers!
