SugarRoti Mulligatawny Soup Recipe


  • 1 SugarRoti Beef Nu Spice Package
  • 3 tablespoons butter or ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (approx. 2 cups)
  • 2 carrots, finely sliced (approx. 1 cup)
  • 2 celery stalks, finely sliced (approx. 1 cup)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups water (or your favorite broth)
  • 1 lb beef, cut into 1-inch cubes (we like top sirloin, but your favorite cut is great. Ask you butcher to remove fat and cut into cubes)
  • ½ cup rice
  • ½ medium apple, cored and chopped


  • 1 medium serrano chili, finely chopped (remove seeds for milder spice)
  • ¼ cup heavy cream, heated
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped


  1. Heat butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add SugarRoti Beef Nu Spice package and sauté until spices are sizzling and fragrant (1-2 min).
  2. Add onions, serrano, carrots, celery and sauté until tender. Stir in flour and mix. Add water and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer (20-25 min).
  3. Add beef, rice, apples and simmer until rice is cooked and beef is tender (15-20 min).
  4. Remove chili pepper, bay leaves, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Drizzle in hot cream and garnish with parsley before serving. 

*Leftovers can be refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen

    The second time I made Mulligatawny I used chicken instead of beef and it was equally tasty!
