This Mulligatawny Golden Soup is an Indian-inspired chicken soup recipe filled with delicious vegetables and spices.
And if you don’t have bone-in chicken thighs, you can use bone-in chicken breasts instead. But if you have boneless chicken thighs or breasts in the fridge or freezer, that’s okay too. Just chop it up into bite-size pieces before adding it to the soup.

What is curry powder?
My recipe includes turmeric as well as curry powder. If you are not familiar with turmeric, you can read my article about its amazing health benefits.
If you have never heard of curry powder, let me explain it to you briefly.
Curry powder is a spice mixture traditionally used in Indian recipes. Curry powder is usually made from a mixture of turmeric, coriander, cumin, black pepper, garlic, cinnamon and cardamom spices.
The spices used in curry powder impart a unique flavour, which is often described as earthy and slightly sweet.
Curry powder usually has a moderate heat level, but it can also have a medium or hot heat level depending on the amount of black pepper in it. My recipe calls for a light curry powder but feel free to use medium or hot if you prefer!

make it keto
There are many different ways to make muligatoni soup. Some recipes include meat, others are vegetarian. Lentils and chickpeas They are very common ingredients in vegetarian moligatoni soup recipes.
However, I decided to use delicious chicken thighs to give my recipe an extra boost of protein which is very important for the keto diet as well as for keeping your gut healthy.
Some mulligatawny recipes are thickened with carb-heavy flour to make it more like a soup. However, I ditched the flour and opted to make my recipe a hearty soup instead.
I used broccoli “rice” instead of traditional rice, but you will absolutely notice a difference! The broccoli in the recipe absorbs the chicken broth and flavorful seasonings, and is much better than the traditional tasteless rice.
In addition to the cauliflower “rice,” I also included carrots and celery to help make the soup more satiating like a traditional moligatoni soup.
Plus, I used ghee and canned coconut milk to keep the recipe completely dairy-free. Believe me, the soup is still delicious but without the side effects that dairy products cause.
