‘SOUP OF THE DAY – MULLIGATAWNY’ -THE SANSKRIT – TAMIL CONNECTION

The English word ‘soup’ is taken directly from Sanskrit! That’s right !!

The Sanskrit word ‘soup’ (सूप) has many meanings including ‘broth’, ‘sauce’, ‘pot’, ‘vessel’ and ‘cook’. ‘Supya’ (सूप्य) means ‘food consisting of soup’. ‘Supika’ (सूपिक) means ‘sauce’.

The word ‘Mulligatawny’ comes from the Tamil. ‘Milagu’ meaning pepper and ‘tanni’, which means water. Literally translated Milagutanni means ‘pepper water’.

A word on the source of English word ‘cook’ (noun). It originates from the Sanskrit ‘pakuk’ (पाकुक) which has the same meaning. The verb ‘cook’ is traced to Sanskrit ‘pakva’ (पक्व) via Latin ‘coquus’. A Proto Indo European word ‘pekw’ has been created to explain the origin of the Latin ‘coquus’. But ‘pekw’ is the exact same Sanskrit word ‘pakva’ (पक्व) mentioned above!
