Lamb Leg Soup

Whenever i think of soup in non vegetarian category, my choice is aatukkaal soup - a spicy soup of leg of lamb. During my school and college days whenever we suffer from cold my mom prepare this for me and my brother and compulsorily we have to drink it. My mom starts preparation of this soup before night. Before she goes to bed she pressure cook the bones and leave it overnight. Next day morning after our breakfast we have to drink this. This is the most common natural remedies for cold symptoms. My mom learnt this recipe from her mother and i learnt from my mom. This is very tasty and this is a natural remedies for cough, cold, strengthening bones...... but the fat content is high..... so who have high cholesterol level should avoid this.
