Chicken Liver Masala Recipe / Chicken Liver Stir Fry.

Chicken Liver is my favourite item in whatever form it is. I grab the pieces in the curry. My husband is not a fan of this, so he gives the pieces to me if he gets it. It is simple and easy to make, yummy and delicious to taste. It prepares with simple ingredients. You will love the rich coat of flavourful Masala.

How to Make Chicken Liver Masala:

My recipe Notes on Chicken Liver Masala:

1. Use Non-Stick pan preferably for cooking this.
2. Caramelisation of onion gives it a natural sweetness and it mitigates the heat from the black pepper.
3. Adjust the water measure if you prefer more gravy.
4. Use homemade garam masala powder for better taste.
5. Adjust the spices according to your tolerance level.
6. Do not overcook the liver or it will be hard and rubberish.
7. Garnish with coriander leaves. (I didn’t as I was not having the fresh ones.
8. At the finishing stage take care to prevent it from burning.
9. Always make sure to get fresh Chicken liver and wash in turmeric water.
