This flavorful soup is similar to a classic chicken noodle but with a rich Indian flavor.


2 Tablespoons of ghee (30 ml)

1 medium onion (4 oz or 110 g), thinly sliced

2 carrots (3.5 oz or 100 g), sliced or diced

2 stalks of celery (1.4 oz or 40 g), diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced or finely diced

1 Tablespoon of fresh ginger (5 g)

4 chicken thighs (1.3 lb or 600 g), skin removed

6 cups of chicken broth (1.5 L)

1 (14 oz or 414 ml) can of full-fat coconut milk

1 Tablespoon of turmeric (6 g)

1 Tablespoon of mild curry powder (7 g)

0.5 head of cauliflower (11 oz or 300 g), processed into rice-like pieces

2 Tablespoon of fresh parsley (2 g), chopped (for garnish)

Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Melt the ghee in a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic and fresh ginger to the pot and cook for 5 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
  2. Add the chicken thighs, chicken broth, coconut milk, turmeric and curry powder to the pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Remove the chicken thighs from the pot, shred using 2 forks, and return the shredded chicken to the pot. Discard the chicken bones.
  4. Add the cauliflower “rice” and simmer for an additional 3 to 5 minutes until the cauliflower is tender. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  5. Ladle into bowls and garnish with fresh chopped parsley before serving.
