Mutton Liver Fry | Aatu Eral Varuval | Mutton Liver Pepper Fry

My mom makes this recipe when I was a kid . She tells that the liver has a lot of iron content in it and forces me to eat this . I did not like cook it because of its smell , but my mom suggest that adding the crushed pepper and cumin seeds powder covers the smell of the liver when it is cooked . Check out my other Mutton recipes by clicking here .

    5. Your Mum is absolutely right. The liver is loaded with iron. The recipe sounds nice.
      To kill the smell of the liver, I usually plunge the pieces in boiling water for a minute or so and then remove and wash them with cold water. Try it next time u make this dish. :-)

    6. I love the liver but my other will stay away. So I have to make and enjoy this lovely dried type curry by myself when he is not around.

    7. Love to finish that whole bowl rite now,irresistible and seriously tempting liver fry.

    8. Looks great, superb and yummy Preethi :-)
