On a chilly winter night, there's nothing that warms our hearts more than a heaping bowl of India Rasoi's mulligatawny soup. This lentil-based dish (whose name translates, roughly, to "pepper water") is a staple at Indian restaurants, and it's usually a tasty but not terribly exciting blend of beans, lemon, and some traditional Indian spices. But Rasoi takes their mulligatawny soup up a level--OK, a flight--from mere staple to outstanding menu item we must order every time we visit. It's a gorgeous mustard-gold with a smooth but slightly grainy texture and a much more complex flavor than any of the other mulligatawnies we've tried around town. We don't know what, exactly, gives it the extra flavor--could be the extra coriander that seems to be part of this mix, or maybe that daring zing of extra lemon--but whatever it is, it makes us want to go outside and get all cold and wet just so we can have an excuse to order an extra-large helping of it whenever we visit India Rasoi.
