This is a most favorite recipe for all in my home. I learned it from my Mother. She used to prepare more tasty (as in Hotel Amsavalli , Madurai). Goat meat is better for making varuval than lamb meat. Fresh meat gives more taste and flavor than the frozen one.

Cook's Tip:
Whole cinnamon sticks gives a spicy aroma to food. Whole sticks are used and later removed. Ground cinnamon are normally used in baking.
Garlic skin comes off easily if the garlic cloves are slightly warmed before peeling.
Always warm dry spices like cumin seeds, cardamom, cloves, etc. on a griddle before powdering. They will grind faster and the powder will be finer.
