Goat Liver Fry | Eeral varuval

Goat Liver Fry | Eeral varuval | Step by step procedure with pictures 

Mutton eeral (Goat liver) is little high in fat content but it does have a lot of iron and protein content. So once in a while eating this is good, you know. Liver will get cooked soon when compared to regular mutton pieces. So you can directly cook it in the pan. But I am using pressure cooker and cook for less whistles. Previously I had posted a soup recipe using Mutton bone, which is my all time favorite and good for health too. Be sure you check that too.


Today I am sharing a varuval (fry) recipe. However you can make it as a varuval or you can prepare it as a gravy for Chapati / Dosa. Same recipe for both. The consistency makes the difference. I like to make it spicy. Make sure you add right amount of spice as per your taste.


Other Mutton / Goat recipes :



  • Serve with steamed rice along with rasam / sambar of your choice.

  • You can skip tomato.
  • Don’t skip fennel seeds. It helps to get rid of meat odor  and helps in digestion also.
  • If you are cooking in a pan instead of pressure cooker, make sure you chop it into small pieces.
  • If you want gravy consistency add more water as needed. You can have it with chapati or dosa also.
  • Do not over cook the liver, it may become rubbery.
