It actually got chilly here in Vancouver so when I was at the store I picked up a can of PC World Of Flavours Indian Chicken Mulligawtawny Soup. I usually make my own soups from scratch but there are days when you just can’t do everything yourself.
The soup cost me $2.28 which seemed very reasonable. I like that all President’s Choice products are now artificial flavour and colour free! Made me a little more comfortable buying a canned product.
Now I have never even heard of Chicken Mulligawtawny Soup before let alone tried it. So I knew that this was going to be a bit of a challenge to review because I had nothing to compare it to.
When I poured the contents of the can into my soup pot, I have to admit, I was not very impressed. The spices are definitely there which is a good thing but the soup seemed anemic.
There were chunks of meat and veggies on the bottom but the broth itself was so thin.
I paired it with President’s Choice Red Harissa Hummus and a bagel and I am so glad I did. I really did not feel like there was much sustenance to this soup at all, other than the spices. I was hoping for so much more. I was left wanting, big time.
At first I thought perhaps I just did not understand the dish and my expectations were screwed but I tried another soup in this product line and again, super thin. These feel more broths than soup to me. Not every soup has to be a chowder but it needs to be more than just this.
I give this product two out of five wooden spoons.
