Liver Varattiyathu


Liver Varattiyathu
Liver recipes is very popular in Kerala. I have already posted a chicken liver fry. This is a different preparation and is spicy and delicious with very less gravy.It is spicy and peppery. You can increase or decrease pepper according to taste and spice tolerance. It is a very quick recipe. All you do is pre-cook the liver with spices and finally roast it with little oil and curry leaves . Try this you will surely love it...




Ingredients

1)Chicken/Mutton Liver- 1 lb
Shallots sliced-  1 1/2 cup
Ginger sliced- 2 inch peice
Garlic- 2-3 pods
Green chilly- 3-4
Turmeric  powder- 1/3 tsp
cumin- a pinch (optional)
Pepper powder- 1 1/3 tsp
Coriander powder- 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder- 1 tsp
Clove powder- a pinch
(you can also add just 3/4 tsp of garam
masala instead of fennel and clove powder)

2)Curry leaves- two springs
Sliced ginger- 1/2 tsp
Coconut oil- 3 tsp
salt to taste


Cut liver into desired cubes. Rub with salt and turmeric powder and wash liver pieces thoroughly at least three to four times and drain out all the excess water and keep aside.
You can use a heavy bottom pan with a lid or the pressure cooker. If using pressure cooker do use whistle.
Put all the ingredients listed under 1 and add three tsps of water. Do not add too much water  as liver will start oozing out water. Add salt only when liver is almost cooked other wise it can make it tough. Cook this in medium flame for 8-10 minutes and add salt continue to cook without lid till all the water get evoporated.
Heat coconut oil in a fry pan and add ginger and curry leaves and roast till there is a nice aroma. Add the cooked liver and saute and till all the masala gets well coated and gets slightly roasted. Serve with rice,bread or chapatis..

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
