Mutton Bone Rasam/Soup

Mutton Bone Rasam/Soup

My son recently had a hairline fractured on his left elbow.  Friends suggested making home made mutton bone soup for a speedy recovery. Apparently the juicy from the bones have healing properties for the bones.  I used a pressure cooker to stew my soup.

Lets look at how to prepare this soup.

Item A
1 tsp of peppercorn
2 tsp of coriander
1 tsp of white peppercorn
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp fennel seeds
2-3 dried chillies depending on the spiciness required
a few sprigs of curry leave

Item B
1 small onion
thumb sized ginger
3-5 cloves of garlic

Item C
1 tomato - chopped small
2-3 chilly  chopped coarsely

Item D
150 gms of mutton bones with fats
6 cups of water
1/2 tsp of turmeric

Item E
1 tbs of gingely oil - optional

Item F
a handful of finely chopped coriander leaves

1.  Grind items A into fine powder and Items B into fine paste.
2.  In a pressure cooker/deep based pot put in all items except gingely oil and coriander leaves.  Cover the pressure cooker and let it on till 5 whistles.
3.  If not using a pressure cooker, stew/boil the soup for an hour or till the meat are well cooked.
4.  Add in gingely oil and chopped coriander leaves and leave it to simmer for another 10 mins.
5.  Ready to serve with bread or rice or just enjoy it as it is.

Enjoy
