Home-style cooking

Medium spiciness

Serves: 2

Ingredients

    • 2 tbsp. oil
    • 5 chicken livers
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
    • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • 1 tsp ginger and garlic paste
    • a pinch of salt (to taste)
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
    • 1 or 1 tsp green or red chilli
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
    • 3 tbsp coriander leaves (chopped)

Ingredients not listed

  • a medium onion – 1 a medium onion – 1 a medium onion – 1 a medium onion –
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  • Finely chop green or red chilies (I have used both mixed 1 tsp). The onion should be sliced into extremely thin rings.
  • Take a bowl and put it in it. Combine the onion rings and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Soak for around 10-15 minutes.
  • This recipe also includes a couple hearts, which are optional.
  • Clean the liver and heart after soaking it in water for 5 minutes.
  • Remove any strings or white tissue adhering to the liver.
  • To eliminate blood clots, remove the fatty tissue surrounding the heart, cut in between, and rinse with water. Clean it up and set it away.
  • Preheat a nonstick pan or tawa (no need to add oil) and add the chicken liver and heart once it’s hot. Cook for 3 minutes on medium heat, or until all of the water has been absorbed. If you apply oil too soon, it may split on your hands and other surfaces. The liver contains a lot of liquid and has a propensity to rupture.
  • Add the oil, as well as the ginger and garlic paste. Mix well and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until light brown in color, stirring occasionally.
  • Except for the lemon juice and onion rings, add all of the spices and 1 tablespoon coriander leaves one by one. Mix and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes on a medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until spices are thoroughly cooked.
  • If the spices are clinging to the pot and it is becoming dry, drizzle a little oil on top.
  • Add a few coriander leaves, onion rings, and lemon juice after the green chilies and other spices have cooked.
  • On a low heat, cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn off the light.
  • Serve with onion rings and coriander leaves as garnish. Serve immediately as an appetizer or a side dish.

Notes

  • Overcooking the liver will result in it becoming tough.
  • You may add oil at the start, but the livers must be dry. When fried, a liver has a propensity to rupture.
