Keto Mulligatawny Soup

My husband LOVES Mulligatawny soup, but since we are trying to consistently eat keto now, it is something we have had to skip. Normally this soup contains more celery, carrots, white rice, flour, and apples - and well, these don't exactly qualify as low carb and keto ingredients. Because of this, we decided to make our own version of Mulligatawny soup that is keto approved. Spoiler alert guys, it came out AMAZING! My kids even devoured it!
