Chicken Liver Sandwich Recipe
It has taken me time to appreciate the taste of the Kaleji or Liver of either chicken or mutton. I earlier used to leave the pieces of Liver for my dad to finish them off. He loved chicken or mutton liver. Over a period, after I started cooking and experiencing the various spices it can be cooked in, the taste started settling in.
Liver has a very distinct taste to it so just a little bit of salt and a spicy sauce hits the right notes on your tongue.
I attempt to make an Indian-ised Chicken Liver Sandwich.
