Liver Fry

liver9“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.” -George Bernard Shaw. I agree.

liver3Conventional dietary wisdom holds that the micronutrients (vitamins, minerals and trace elements) we need from foods are most highly concentrated in fruits and vegetables. While it’s true that fresh fruits and veggies are full of vitamins and minerals, their micronutrient content pales in comparison to what is found in meats and organ meats – especially liver.

liver11It is not uncommon to find people disliking liver, but after knowing about the nutrition facts of liver, you may have no option than to include it in your diet, just so you can reap the health benefits.

liver8 Liver is full with essential nutrients and is  a good source of protein, various vitamins and minerals. Protein from the liver strengthens your muscles and offers you strong nails, shiny hair and supple skin.

liver12Am not too fond of liver but hubby is;  so when he came home with a big smile and carrying a big chunk of “Liver”,  I knew that it was high-time  to dish out a special of his “ Liver Fry”.  You can make it as spicy as you like by increasing/decreasing the chillies.

liver2This is another special from the cook-book of Roseline;  so there you go.

liver10Cut liver into large chunks, wash thoroughly and boil for 10-15 minutes with 2 bay leaves and 2” cinnamon and a little water.  When done cut into square cubes and keep aside.  Dont discard the water in which it was boiled.

Liver1In a non-stick vessel,  add ghee or oil and fry the onions till brown  flecs appear.  Then add the ground masala and fry well till the oil brims to the surface.  Add the cubed liver,  sliced green chillies,  sliced garlic, vinegar, salt and ½ tea spoon of sugar and enough water + water in which the liver was boiled (discard the bay leaf and the cinnamon)  and let it simmer in the gravy for 15-20 minutes.  Then add the cubed potatoes and let it simmer till the potatoes are done.

liver4The gravy should be very thick and not runny by the time the potatoes are done.

liver6When serving garnish with finely cut coriander leaves and green chillies.

liver13Serve piping hot with Chappatis.    Goes well as a side dish for Peas Pulav as well.
