Is there a way to give specific mass to a solid body?

For simulation purposes I need to control and have specific mass on certain solid bodies. So the question is, is it possible to add a mass to a solid with random dimension

It would probably be easier to create a custom material and vary the density of that material until you get the mass you need.

Usually in your CAD system you can determine the volume of the part. If you have a specific weight that you are working with, you can divide that into the volume and determine the density that you'd need to apply in order to have the model weight = your target weight.
If you use properties of your model, you could put that into a design table and do the calculations that way.
