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.
Putting 3-4 cloves in the sugar container will keep the ants at bay.
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.
