Mutton Soup

#9 Amma's Recipe

My mom is the first inspiration for cooking. It is from her I learned all the basics and almost all the recipes. She herself was self taught, experimenting and collecting recipes from friends, chefs and anyone whenever she came across a tasty dish. And even after 30 years of experience in the kitchen, she does not seem to lose curiosity. So While I was expecting my little one, I was away from home and spent 5 months at my mom's place. She made all my favourite dishes and I decided to share few of them with you. So starting with this MUTTON SOUP recipe, stay tuned as i will be sharing many more of my mom's cooking (exclusively cooked by her)...Hope you will enjoy trying out some.

This soup is a always a sunday breakfast at our home. Its spicy and tangy made in south Indian style with onions, tomatoes and whole lot of spices. Bowl of hot soup during a rainy day is heavenly. And its a good home remedy for common cold too ;) 

I will also be posting a Mutton Pepper Fry recipe SOON recipe posted now, something inspired from a dish we had at a small highway hotel. So stay tuned lots coming up....
