Rajani gaaru,
I want to try this recipe this week. But I have a question, chicken livers are very fragile when uncooked right? I am worried if they would get mashed up if I try to cut them into pieces before cooking. Any tips on this?

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Shesha,

No need to worry, wash them well remove any blood veins that hang around it and odd bits, slice them with knife only 2-3 cuts and do as per my recipe. It won't be mushed up.

cheers

Rajani gaaru,
I tried the same recipe for goat liver. It was yummy :)

Rajani Rayudu said...

Hi Shesha,

You tried with goat liver, if you are really into liver then it suits. Try with chicken next time, it will be so tender,
some times I eat half the curry by myself.

cheers

I tried this recipe and it came out well. my wife was little hesitant when I bought the liver from walmart but now with the curry made well, she is OK to buy the liver regularly :P.

Nice one... Thanks
