Being brought up in Bangkok I remember my family and I would go to this Muslim restaurant to have this most amazing cow’s tail soup and I remember the flavours to be so fresh and clean. I would ask my mom what is this and my dad would reply saying “Doum hai Doum” which means “this is a tail” in Urdu. 😀
The soup is thin and clear but at the same time taste very heavy due to the amount of flavour packed in it! It’s eaten with steamed jasmine infused boiled rice and is so surprisingly filling it’s not even funny, the meat is so tender, so tender it melts right away in your mouth and the juice from the bones into the soup make you want to kiss the hands of the one who invented this dish! It’s basic and very easy to make, key ingredient? Love!
Today I will share the recipe with you. 🙂
Things you will need :
1 cow’s tail.
1/4 cup celery
5 coriander roots or 1/2 cup coriander without leaves
2-3 green cardamom ( do not pop them open)
2 fresh red chillies
2 fresh green chillies
1 chunk of 2 inch thick ginger
2 tbsp fresh garlic paste
1 tsp red chilly flakes.
2 star anise
1/2 stick cinnamon
1 tbsp white pepper
10 whole black pepper
Sea salt to taste
Chopped coriander leaves
Clean and Boil the tail in water and skim out the protein that floats to the top.
Add in the crushed garlic, chopped onion and everything !
Cover it and let it boil until the meat is so tender, it should almost be leaving the bones! Mean while prepare the garnish! 🙂 this is the fun part and I love it!
Plate up! Make it look beautiful serve hot with steamy hot white rice ( do not put oil and salt ).
