What to do with a cow’s tail? (Recipe)

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. πŸ˜€
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. πŸ™‚
