mutton soup, made using mutton bones and is a healthy soup recipe for winters with a liquid and hot texture.
The healthy non veg soup is a huge hit during winters which helps us to keep warm and this soup is good to drink in mornings, lunch as well as dinners.
How to make this soup with bones?
- The first and most important thing is to choose mutton with bones which gives a very juicy flavor and makes the soup yummy and juicy to consume.
- The soup takes in mutton, herbs and spices and not too many ingredients.
- Just adding a couple of ingredients such as salt, black pepper, sliced onions, herbs such as coriander leaves, water, ginger garlic paste and few simple ingredients to keep the mutton soup light and not spicy.
- The mutton with bones soup should be pressure cooked well in order to get a very soupy flavor in water and then makes it easy to drink or can be served with breads as well.
- Similar soup is shared on the blog which is using goat legs and is a paya soup which is slightly different to this mutton soup but made using legs of goat and tastes good and do try this soup and marag for warmth and good health.
- Just pressure cooking the mutton with required spices gives a very delicious soup which should be consumed hot.
- To make it spicy whole garam masala such as cinnamon and cloves can be added but to make it simpler and healthier it is better to avoid.
Benefits of consuming a soup:
- The bone soup is healthy when consumed hot and fresh and is known to keep away winter ailments such as cold and flu away to a certain extent and gives respite from cold.
- Not only mutton soup but there are many other soups that can be made and are healthy in maintaining the calcium levels of the body too.
- The soups made out of vegetables are low in calories and also aid in weight loss.
- These soups help in keeping the body warm during winters.
How to serve these soups:
These soups can be served in a bowl using a spoon which help in consuming easily.
Generally, they are eaten with flat breads such as roti, naan, phulka or pav which makes a great combination with these liquid soups.
How to choose the mutton to make the soup:
The goat or lamb meat always has bones that has flesh attached to it and such meat gives out best results or just pick up mutton with bones or ask the store owner to give that section of the meat to make the soup.
Important points to remember:
- Never use the mutton bones which has lots of fat attached to it as the soup turns out badly due to bad taste of fat.
- The soup made out of full of fat attached to the bones is unhealthy too.
- Make sure to use mutton with bones without fat and then add plain nalli or bone marrow bones which give a good flavor and make sure to discard meat with fat/ cholesterol containing sections.
- I have chosen mutton that has bone to it as well as some nalli but anything can be chosen as these bones release healthy juices out of it into the soup.
I have also shared marag recipe which is another different kind of a soup and there are various ways soups can be made and hope to update many more during this season of cold.
Below are the recipe details on how to make this simple soup in a pressure cooker which can also be slow cooked for a long time.
I have made using pressure cooking method but it can be kept in a cooking pot and left for hours to slowly cook the meat and allow the juices to release into the soup by slow cooking for a very long time.
A video procedure too would be updated soon so stay tuned!
