Recipe for Mutton leg Soup

Ingredients for Mutton Soup:

  • 500 g mutton leg (Goat legs are available in most stores that sell halal meat)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp coriander seed
  • 1/2 tsp jintan puteh (cumin)
  • 1/2 tsp jintan manis (fennel seeds)
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 1 piece cinnamon stick – 1″ long
  • 3 pieces clove
  • 3 cardamon
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 4-5 cups water

  1. Clean the goat legs under running water, remove any unwanted fat clinging to the bones.
  2. Chop individually tomato, onion and garlic.
  3. Pound coriander seed, jintan puteh, jintan manis to a fine paste.
  4. Heat oil in pot, fry tomato, onion, garlic and ginger until fragrant and light brown.

  6. If you are cooking in a pressure cooker, cook for a little longer till 5 to 6 whistles if your pressure cooker gives out whistles or till it rocks hard.
  7. While cooking in a large pot, simmer till the meat near to the bone has cooked well and water reduces to almost half the amount (about 2-3 hours). Cover the pot and cook (add more water if required).
