Mutton baby corn soup: My mom to used make soups when someone has cold in the house. But now, with changing lifestyle, I’m accustomed to making soups very often. I make mutton soup for my kid as an after school evening refreshment. The light sweetness in the baby corn enhances the flavour and taste of the mutton soup.
Whether it’s a mutton soup or a mutton curry , I prefer long simmering for better taste. Given the busy schedule, I always end up using pressure cooker to fasten the preparation. Nevertheless, the taste is awesome and a must try for the viewers. I sometime mix the soup with steamed rice or side it up with Appam/dosa for my kid. I must say, she enjoys it more than anything else.
