Mulligatawny

Mulligatawny is a special soup which is served at Gourmet Grill Pakistan. I dont know the origin of this soup but I am pretty sure it is from Arab because I ate a similar soup at Tiba’s Lebanese restaurant, VIC, Melbourne.

It is a full meal which is nutritious and healthy in every way…..
