Paya Fry

  • Non Veg
  • 1 hr 15 mins
  • Serves 2
  • Easy



This paya fry dish is more similar to an attu kaal soup than a traditional paya because its main ingredient is lamb legs instead of trotters. It may use meat from a little further up off the ground, but it has just as much a spicy kick as traditional paya. And just like all paya, it is refreshing and delicious on hot summer days. Its spicy qualities will help you cool down in the summer by making you sweat, and in the winter it’ll help you stay warm. There’s almost never a bad time to prepare this dish.

Health Benefits

Lamb is a wonderful meat with a lot of natural health benefits. Your typical cut of lamb has about 50% of the amount of Omega 3 found in tuna, which is a lot for a non-fish meat source. Omega-3’s have been shown to boost brain health, fight cancer and heart disease, and reduce inflammation. The benefits of the Omega-3’s combined with lamb’s significant protein content work together to make lamb a great muscle recovery agent. The protein helps the repair muscle damage, and the Omega-3 helps reduce the pain and inflammation caused by muscle tearing.
