Kudal Varuval – Spicy Mutton Boti Roast

It is always difficult to find Boti /Kudal dish in the restaurant. I believe the main reason for it is due to the difficulty involved in the cleaning process. Cleaning it is a difficult task for me so I cook it once in a while. Whenever I go on vacation my parents would never miss to cook and give me boti. This is also my mom’s recipe. I have already posted my mom’s boti chana dal curry. Try them too.
