Chicken Liver Masala Fry / Dry Masala Coated Chicken Liver

Chicker liver is hubby's favorite, I am not so fond of it. But he loves it more than anything else. Even in the chicken curry which I make, he looks for that liver piece. So I thought to make a simple dish with his favorite ingredients. And guess what he loved it a lot. 

Those liver tasted so spicy and yummy, it picked all the flavours from the spices and was cooked beautifully. I am planning to make a fry with that..I will post that soon. 

Hope you will love it and tell me if you try it someday.

Serves - 2


Chicken Liver - 200 gms
Onion - 1 medium size thinly sliced
Tomatoes - 1 medium size  chopped finely
Curry leaves - 1 spring
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tblspn
Coriander powder / Malli podi -1 tblspn
Chilli powder - 1 tsp or to taste
Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Fennel Seeds / Saunf / Sombu - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves / Cilantro - for garnishing
Oil - 2 tblspn


Heat oil in a kadai. Add in fennel seeds and let them sizzle.

Add in onions and saute them for few mins. Add in ginger garlic paste and saute them for a mins.

 Add in curry leaves and mix them well.

Now add in salt, spice powders and mix well.

Throw the tomatoes in and give  a stir. Cook the tomatoes till they turn slightly mushy.

Add in chicken liver and toss well with the masala

Cover this with a lid and cook on a low heat for 15-20 mins till the chicken liver is cooked completely, but doesn't turn mushy.

Now open the lid and cook on a high heat, till all the water evaporates and the dish gets thick and dry.

Throw in lots of coriander leaves and mix well so that the flavours will get united.

Serve this curry with plain white rice and rasam. YUM YUM.
