mamak soup

This is a typical Mamak soup sold on the streets
just that I've added some veggies in it
and I'm using beef shin instead of bones 
truly delightful

Here's how to cook it:

marinate 300g beef in 3 grated garlic and 1" grated ginger

heat 2 Tabsp cooking oil in a medium pot over medium fire

toss in 1 cinnamon stick + 2 cardamom + 1 star anise + 3 cloves into the pot 

and let the aroma of the spices invade your kitchen!

saute 1 diced onion + some fresh cilantro and allow more aroma into your kitchen

add in the marinated beef and mix well with all the spices

it is perfectly alright if the beef gets slightly caramelized here

add 5 cups water + 1 cut carrot + 2 cut celery stalk + 2 cut tomatoes + 1 teasp BABA's kurma curry mix
(in a bowl, add water bit by bit into the kurma mix to form a smooth paste before pouring into the mixture)

allow the vegetables to boil before adding in 1 teasp of salt

the salt would bring out the flavor of the vegetables

let the soup boil for 1 hour or so until the beef gets cooked

keep adding water enough to maintain the consistency of the soup

once the beef are well cooked taste again for the saltiness of the soup

add 1 teasp extra salt if needed and off the fire

garnish with more cilantro

serve hot with baguette or rice

squeeze some fresh lemon over the soup before eating

hhhmmm ..

what more can I say :)

a word on the beef
as I'm cooking the beef shin which is the toughest part of the beef I use pressure cooker to cook it much earlier before making the soup to cut the time short
adding some bones into this soup would just be perfection!!!
