From Grandma’s Kitchen: Meat Soup

This is the soup that Goan grandmothers fed their families. Having this soup during the cold or rainy season is comforting.


½ kg meat

2 tomatoes (chopped)

¼ inch ginger piece

4 garlic flakes

1 onion (chopped)

Few celery or mint leaves

Alphabet macaroni or any other small macaroni shape

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste


Except for the macaroni, put all the ingredients in and bring it to a boil.

Remove the film that comes on the top.

Keep the soup on a slow fire for about 2 hours without covering it.

Strain it. Then put in the macaroni and boil until the macaroni is tender.
