Mutton Paya Soup/Lamb Trotters and Awards

Lamb trotters are the lamb legs and they are burnt before selling.The trotters has to be cleaned and small strands of hair has to be removed.This is soup is very healthy mostly given to children, to the new mothers and also to recuperating patients for its nourishments.

This soup i remember my mom used to give me as i was very thin and she used to say that this soup is very healthy for the kids.My kids also love this,i usually make this as their breakfast on holidays.


Lamb trotters/legs:-4 nos
Onions 1 (chopped)
Gralic - 5-6 pods (chopped)
Black Peppers -- 10 nos
Coriander (whole) 1 tbsp
Green chillies 2(slited)
Zeera - 1 tbsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt as per taste



1.Clean mutton legs throughly and check it for small hair which has to be removed.

2.Mix trotters,onions,garlic,black pepper, coriander, zeera, chillies and oil.Pressure cook until you get 5-6 whistles.

3.Allow it to cool and add salt,again pressure cook until you get 2-3 whistles.

Before giving it to kids filter the soup and let it be warm.This taste good with hot dosa.

PS:- Remember to add salt after step two not before that because if salt is added intially the trotters takes time to cook.
