Chicken Liver Fry

Chicken liver fry is a delicious dish with great aroma and taste. It has very little,thick gravy or to say it is a rather dry roasted form. I have added lots of pepper to give a nice spice kick to the liver fry. You can reduce the amount of chilly powder and add more of pepper powder if you like the peppery flavor.This goes well with rice, parattas and chapati.

Chicken liver- 1 lb
Shallots thinly sliced- 10- 12
Garlic crushed- 4 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
salt to taste
oil- 2 tsp
Coconut oil- 1 tsp/ butter 1/2 tsp
curry leaves

Cut liver into desired sizes. For cleaning add half tsp of turmeric and salt and gently rub with your fingers (just like you marinate) and after a few seconds wash this out completely by bringing it under running water. Wash the liver three to four time and place it in  a strainer so that all blood and water drains out.( or you can soak in milk and drain out completely)  Keep it aside.

In a heavy bottom pan add oil and first add in curry leaves and when a nice aroma comes add garlic and saute for a few seconds. Now add chopped shallots and fry till golden brown. Mix all the dry powders and spices and make a paste by adding two to three tsps of water. Add this and fry till oil separates. In goes the liver pieces and gently coat with the masalas. Pour in 1/3 cup of water ( do not add more water and do not will become rubbery) and close the lid. Cook in medium for about five to six minutes till all the water has evaporated. Finally add coconut oil and fresh curry leaves and dry roast it in medium heat till browned up and all the water has evaporated and the skin tightening a bit. Serve warm.

Kerala Fish Curry ( Mulaku Curry)

Kerala's Red Fish Curry or the Mulaku Charu is hot and spicy fish curry. Its rich color is from Kashmiri chilly powder which is less spicy when compared to regular chilly powder.

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists.
