Chicken Liver Masala

“Viva España” ..Hope every body had enjoyed the 2010 FIFA World Cup Soccer Final. At last, Spain got the cup.. The final match was not too bad though it was a physical game (especially Netherlands's play)..It was a war in the play-ground.The Red Bull vs Orange Lion. This was the first time Spain got the chance to play in the World cup final and they got it...Good work guys.
My hus is a die-hard fan of this soccer. He used to watch all the game; for a company me too. After watching few games I also got interested in these games...I never forget the Ghana vs Uruguay match..After watching the game I was so disappointed. The penalty kick he (Gyan) took in that last minutes in the extra time was not gone through but the within minutes he scored the goal in the penalty shoot-out!.. If he could make the same few minutes ago,  those guys sure would have won the game..I always scared of watching the penalty shoot-outs.. The entire team’s future is depend on one single player, he fails to score, the entire team loses. That's bad right? Winners, you keep up your work. Losers, failure is the step for the victory, so don’t worry Keep going. We will see you all again in Barzil after 4 years.
OK, Let me share my worldcup special recipe. It is a chicken dish.but very special kind of dish.-Chicken Liver Masala.Chicken is familiar to everyone and and it’s one of the favorite meat for all non-vegetarians. However, I am pretty sure that so many of u haven’t tried this chicken liver masala. I haven’t tried either until last week. I was not that familiar this liver curry but tasted the lever pieces often when mom used to make the chicken curry at home. She always add  the liver pieces in the chicken curry  for me as because it is my favorite one. If my brother found the piece in his curry plate, he used to say:”hey ur special is in my plate”. However I hadn’t tasted the specially made liver dishes like “Chicken Liver masala”. When we came to US,  we used to buy the Mutton liver from HALAL market but not chicken liver. We never thought about Chicken Liver. Recently I saw this chicken liver in our favorite grocery shop: Kroger.
Today  when I started preparing tea in the morning  I realized that we didn’t have the milk.Somehow I forgot to buy it .So we decided to goto our favorite shop:Kroger.We bought the milk and i thought i can make some chicken biriyani,ya really anyway its weekend.. just told my hus and just headed to poultry section.There i saw something unusal, one box (looks like yogurt box) little confused  “why did they place this yogurt in meat section”.. Then i checked the label and realized that it was not yogurt ;it was chicken liver. I was so excited.because very first time i was seeing such an item there. changed the plan for the biryani and  bought one liver box.  Then made this soccer special liver masala.
About the recipe,this is so simple and the process is as same as the way we used to make the chicken curry. one difference is that here we are not using the tomato.One more thing this time i used the home-made masala for this preparation. .Amma used to prepare the same at home but, whenever i asked her about the quantity she use to say “athu oru alavinangu edukkanam”. She never gives the exact measurement because she never follows the measurements, just use her intuition and experience. However, this time I could successfully convert her intuition and experiences in to exact measurements and it  came out really nice.. The homemade masala taste really superb fresh and so aromatic.so does the curry :).If u are a liver lover and if u have a chance to buy it,  don’t miss to try this delicious liver masala. It is so simple and a superb combination with chapathi, roti, paratha and tosted bread.One more thing i want to say: Keep it for sometime before serving then the liver pieces get the masala and it tastes really good. Ok let me  explain the details of our favorite chicken liver masala recipe
Cost of the Item:3.50 usd/1.1 Pound

  • Slice the onion into small pieces.Crush the ginger and garlic.Slit the green chilies.
  • Prepare the Garam Masala as follows:

  • Add the Onion slices into it. saute until the onions get transparent.
  • Add the  turmeric powder,Chili powder Coriander powder and Garam Masala.Mix well with the onion mix
  • Add the Liver pieces into the masla mix and cook the same for 7-10 minute in medium heat.Garnish with curry leaves.
The Delicious Chicken Liver Masala is ready to have.Best combination is with chapathi.


Cook’s Tip
  • Do not overcook the liver .If u do so, it will become  rubbery  and won’t get the real taste and texture.
  • You can use oil instead of butter. I prefer Coconut oil.It will give nice taste and aroma (Keralites like its taste and aroma).
