Aattu Kaal Soup | Goat Trotters Soup | Goat Feet Soup

Aattu Kaal Soup | Goat Trotters Soup | Goat Feet Soup  is a spicy soup prepared with “smoked” | “fire roasted”  legs of a goat / lamb. This soup is a specialty from South India and generally  prepared hot & spicy with generous addition of pepper. The hotness of the soup with the smoky flavour makes this soup unique among all other non-veg soups which everyone should enjoy.

Generally, any soup or broth prepared with animal bones have numerous health benefits and this “attu kaal” soup is one of the very best.  Doctors themselves prescribe this soup for patients recuperating from fracture. It is very good for those who are weak and sick, for growing children, feeding mothers and  those who suffer from arthritis. I will not recommend this soup for people with cholesterol problem but they can have it rarely, may be once in 2 months.
