Author Notes: Paired with the potent mix of pepper, green chillies and curry leaves, these chicken livers are slightly charred and fiery outside and soft and fragrant inside. This quick, South-Indian style stir fry is unbelievably simple and is delicious eaten with plain rice or even toast; and is great as an appetiser with ice-cold beer. —quiche'n'tell
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 10 min
Fresh chicken livers, cleaned and trimmed of all connective tissue and cut into a big dice
A handful of fresh curry leaves
Finely minced garlic cloves
medium onion chopped
Fresh green chillies slit lengthwise
teaspoon Black peppercorns roughly crushed in a mortar
tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt to taste
- Heat oil in a non stick pan and sauté the onions for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further 20 seconds taking care not to burn them.
- Put in the green chillies, fry for 10 seconds and add the livers. Fry on medium-high heat to sear them. Once they get a nice brown coating (2-3 minutes), cover and cook for a further 5 minutes till soft and done.
- Continue to stir and add the curry leaves, salt and pepper. Fry for a minute more till the spices are incorporated. It should resemble an almost dry, stir-fry kind of appearance. Serve hot.
