South Indian Style Chicken Liver Pepper Fry

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
