Mutton Soup - Easy Version

This easy version always reminds my childhood days....waiting in front of cooker while my mom cooks mutton for the fry or kurma...she used to serve that mutton water by adding pepper and salt in small tumbler..wow...used to taste awesome..
Later i started improvising by adding cooked toor dal in that soup to get the consistency..sometimes i used to have this with hot rice too..
 Few days back,  posted my mutton fried rice recipe and had mentioned that, will post mutton soup with the reserved mutton water....Here is the easy mutton soup....


Section A :

250 Gms Mutton
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Tomato, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 Tsp Turmeric powder
1 Tsp Chilli powder
1 Tsp Mutton masala
Salt to taste

Section B :

1 Cup Toor dal, cooked and mashed
1 Tsp pepper powder
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :

Pressure cook the section A ingredients for 20 minutes or until the mutton gets cooked.
Wait for the steam to release and remove the mutton pieces separately.
Now heat the reserved mutton water and add the mashed toor dal.
Let it boil for couple of minutes. Adjust salt and add pepper powder.
Turn off the flame and add coriander leaves before serving.

Note :

Adjust pepper powder according to your spicy level.
Even saunf tempering can be done for the extra flavor.
