Super-thick and deliciously filling, this creamy Curried Chicken and Rice Soup is a twist on a mulligatawny. Warming Indian spices help to make this chunky soup ideal for colder months, and light cream cheese gives it that indulgent, creamy taste without tons of extra calories. It's a great way to use up any chicken that you might have left over from your Sunday lunch!

I added
I added a extra tablespoon of mango chutney just to give it more flavour
Absolutely delicious!
This is a lovely dish. I used madras curry powder as I like a kick and I didn't have mango chutney so used tomato and chilli chutney that I had in the fridge. Very tasty!
Makes a little chicken go a long way. Fantastic flavour!soup
If it's a bit too spicy for anyone in the family, pop a little natural fat free yoghurt in. Looks pretty too!
Easy, filling recipe. Great alternative to stews.
Don't be too fussy when chopping the ingredients for this dish. The more uneven they are the better it looks. Found this out on 2nd, 3rd and 4th attempt at it 😀

I really want to make this tomorrow, but don’t have plain cream cheese, only garlic and herbs! Will it work, or will I have to pop to the shops?
I have fat free natural yogurt too.


    HollyMonday 7th February 2022

    Hey Hayley, the garlic and herbs cream cheese will work great instead of plan. Hope that helps!
