Recipe for Suvarotti Varuval – Goat Spleen Fry with step by step pictures and video

Goat Spleen is called as Suvarotti in Tamil. Suvarotti literally means “stick to the wall”. Its is called as suvarotti for its sticky nature when raw. Organ meats are very high in amino acids, B12 and minerals. It is a recommended source of iron for people suffering from low hemoglobin. A mere 50 grams of this organ meat meets around 100% of our daily requirement for iron. Having said that, the taste of organ meat is an acquired one. I eat it once in a while because it is healthy. I am not a great fan of its flavour. You may want to try it in small amounts first time to see if you can handle its robust flavour.
Also, since its very popular in South India, it sells very fast. You may want to ask / prebook the spleen with your butcher as this comes in limited quantity and sells very fast.

Here is how to make Suvarotti Varuval – Goat Spleen Fry
Add in the cleaned and washed suvarotti to a pressure cooker. I prefer to cook it for a brief while and then cut so the meat and its juices bleeds a little less. In some cases, the meat will be covered in a white film like skin. You might want to clean it if its not already cleaned. Add in the turmeric powder and salt.

Cook for 2-3 minutes / 1 whistle. Release the pressure. Remove the meat and cut into 1 inch cubes. Keep the pieces big as it will shrink during cooking.

  1. Thanks so much for this recipe. I have been meaning to ask for you for a spleen recipe because my daughter is anemic and I regularly give her this. But I always have doubts as to if I am washing it right and cooking is correct. Now I have a guide. By the way, I am a big fan of this site. Thanks for all the recipe. Cooking made easy 🙂

      1. Commenting again (grins*). Tried it yesterday. Cooking suvarotti before cutting it is a brilliant hack.
