Most preferred soup at home on a gloomy day especially in october :)
What you need
Mutton - 1/2 lbs ( with bones)
Onion - 1 small ( sliced thin)
Green chillies - 2-3 ( slit)
Ginger-garlic - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Fennel powder - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - as needed
Water - 3 cups
How you will make it
Clean mutton pieces and marinate it with ginger-garlic paste ,salt, turmeric,coriander and red chilli powder.After 20 minutes or so, pressure cook the marinated meat with 3 cups water.Let it go 3-4 whistle under medium low flame.Switch off the heat and let it slightly cool down.
In another pan, heat oil and saute sliced onions and once they are slighly golden brown , add the meat with its water.Add in the fennel powder and pepper powder.Adjust the salt again if needed at this point.
Let it boil for about 5 minutes on medium high flame.Serve it hot .
I personally don't like extra garnishing on the soup other than the curry leaves.But you can add chopped coriander leaves or mint leaves if you prefer.
>> Try dry roasting fennel seeds and peppercorns before grinding to a powder for that special nutty flavour.
>>I prefer small onions instead of big onion.But I was out of it this time around.
>>You can add in chopped in tomato if you are in for that slighly tangy flavour.
