I have just bought external goat fat from butcher. It's pure fat in creamy white color. I don't know how to use it. Can I make Tallow or just melt it when cooking or frying?.
Here in Sri Lanka, they use only for flavoring soup and curries.
Thanks on advance!

Yeah, I use it a lot. I don't imagine you have crock pots in Sri Lanka because they didn't have them in Europe. I usually use mine for fat rendering, but if you don't have one you can use this method since it's pretty much the same as tallow. I typically spice it during rendering to improve the flavor. I use goat fat frequently, for flavoring soups and curries, but also for an all-purpose cooking fat. It's good to hear they are still using it. My Sri Lankan relatives use vegetable ghee, which is hydrogenated :(
