  • 4-6 lamb legs/paya
  • salt - to taste
  • 2 teaspoon grated ginger adrak
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic lehsun
  • 4-5 black pepper corns
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped mint leaves
  • ½ cup onions finely sliced
  • 3-4 cups of water
  • 1 teaspoon oil


  • Firstly, in a pressure cooker add the legs of lamb/paya/trotters.
  • Add water for about 3 cups.
  • Add salt as required, add grated ginger, garlic which is optional, black peppercorns.
  • Pressure cook for about 20-30 minutes on low flame and keep aside.
  • Meanwhile in a sauce pan, heat oil, add sliced onions and fry till slight brown.
  • Transfer the fried onions to the paya soup, add coriander leaves, mint leaves.
  • Cook for few minutes and switch off the flame.
  • Serve hot as a soup or with rotis or rice.


In this soup I have added the basic ingredients and avoided spicy ingredients such as cloves, cinnamon etc which can be added if one wishes to. If this soup is given to children then it is better to strain out the soup and feed them the filtered soup.
