wp-image-230346603jpg-2

Hey Fella, I assume you’re having a wonderful day and getting your laughing gear round with preferred dishes. Let me introduce you to Lamb Trotters (so-called Mutton Paya Soup or lamb trotters soup), this appetizing and luxurious dish is a heavy stew fostered from feet of goat or lamb, bones from the leg with wealthy gelatin marrow enveloped with meat. This recipe is perfect to be ponder during winters as it keeps me cosy and I always make this during winters and rainy to get warmth.

It is sort of a spicy sticky soup. It is eaten warm enough, because when it gets cold it curdles. It is healthy for countless reasons:

  1. Joints booster
  2. Miracle food for post natal recovery
  3. Revives aging bones

Prep time: 40 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour

  • 4-5 black pepper corns
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp finely chopped mint leaves
  • ½ cup onions finely sliced
  • 3-4 cups of water

  1. First of all, clean trotters with dough (little liquid consistency drafted by flour & water) as it may contain animal wool which I dont like to be sinking in my soup.
  2. Then put in the legs of lamb/paya/trotters in a pressure cooker with some salt, turmeric powder and 3 cups of water.
  3. Pressure cook for about 20-30 minutes on low flame and put aside.

How to overcome the habit of unsatisfaction!! (3 min read)

images

The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.     – St. Jerome

Don’t know if its only me or anyone else who feels the same way that whatever path of success I am in, I never feel satisfied, feels like there is always some thing missing, something could be better than that..AHHH! Literally this feeling leaves you as “total failure”.

What REASONS I unearth for this unfortunate emotion is:

Being Unthankful To ALLAH

Devil or Satan wants us humans to be ungrateful to Allah, in fact this is one of satan’s primary mission to make human beings unappreciated to our God.

Keep Your Heart Healthy

All is well when heart is feeling well. According to National Health Service, follow some good health tips for heart here: http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Healthyhearts/Pages/Healthy-heart-tips.aspx

The NHS guides us to steer clear of smoking, be full of get-up-and-go, persist in being healthy weight and the list goes on..

Quit Digging Holes

Stop thinking about your doomed past events, they are for no good in present. Understand that it’s over and you have a new situation you want to focus on. Whenever you go off-track in a problem or the past or future in your thoughts then,  breathe with your tummy for two minutes and just concentrate on the air coming in and out. It will hush your body down and drive your mind back into the existing moment again. Then you get go aiming on what is most crucial for you afresh.

Don’t Intend For Perfection 

Life was never, and never will be perfect so that you could end up happily. Question to ask yourself is: Does perfection in any task lead to your satisfaction? If it’s YES then stop over-burdening your own self.. as things can go with good enough approach too!!

Also happiness will be troublesome to smell out with unnecessary perfectionism. Spotting the performance beam at an nonhuman level usually assists to low self-esteem too.
