Spicy Mutton Soup

Remember the earlier Mutton Ball Soup??? A little tedious to make because of frying the mutton balls. This one easier lah!! Sort of an authentic Indian style soup. Really lovely I have to say. Made with spices and veggies too. Mutton as you know takes a while to cook. So buy those tender cuts. Otherwise you may have to use the pressure cooker to tenderise it.

Prepare mutton:
400grams of mutton (meat and bones - cut into bite sizes)
Add in:
1 tbsp ginger paste
1/2 tbsp garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric (kunyit) powder
Marinate by mixing and leave in the fridge for one hour.  
Other Ingredients
1 medium size carrot (cubed)
3 sticks of celery (cubed)
3 small potatoes (cubed)

For Soup Base:
1/2 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tbsp meat curry powder
1 medium size onion (sliced)
1 medium size tomato (cut into 8 pieces)
Spices (cinnamon, star anise, cardamom & clove)
One handful of coriander leaves
1 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

In a medium size pot, add just 1 table of oil (fats in mutton will produce more oil).
When heated, put in spices, onion and mutton.
Stir and fry till oil splits. 
Now, add tomatoes and stir.
Pour  litre of water, close with the lid and let it simmer. 
Open lid, add potatoes, carrots, coriander, cumin, fennel, black pepper and curry powder.
Season with salt. 
Stir, simmer till carrots and potatoes becomes tender.
Add celery and simmer for another 3-4 mins.
Off heat and combine coriander leaves.
