Mutton was not much used by my mother in her cooking probably because of the high cholesterol levels it has. But when I reached Coimbatore here almost everyone started telling me about the health benefits of mutton. I was surprised to hear the different parts of goat used in cooking. Whenever I was sick many advised me to drink "mutton soup". Latha, my maid and a born cook, was one among them. To me she was the brand ambassador of Mutton. Its she who taught me mutton delicacies. Thank you latha.....
The health benefits of lamb liver include ingestion of good quality protein. One serving of lamb can give you up to 23 grams or 40 per cent of daily intake of protein. Lamb liver is also very high in fat and rich in vitamin A.
My experiences with the liver was only during my Post delivery care. Amma used to give liver fried in ghee and pepper..
