Healthy Organic Muligatawny Soup

East meets West from the time of the British Raj resulting in a delicious soup served in gentlemen’s clubs since the 19 th century. Based on the South Indian rasam or ‘pepper water’ (in Tamil milagu thani) to which which a wide selection of vegetables and apple have been added, this fragrant soup offers amazing health benefits.

Traditional healing spices in our special curry powder include coriander, red chilli, cumin,
sesame, fenugreek, salt, mustard, clove, cinnamon, cardamon, black pepper, asafoetida,
mace, turmeric and nutmeg. Add garlic with beneficial sulphur compounds and ginger with
the powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory gingerol and you have an immune boosting
recipe.

Our pride at Zenxin is our range of fresh organic fruit and vegetables, here we have added the classic mirepoix veggies plus nutrient dense parsnip, apple and lemon. The mirepoix is
sautéed in one of Ayurveda’s treasured healing foods, organic grass-fed ghee.
