Tawa Kaleji Fry is a simple and traditional recipe made with chicken or Mutton liver, fried with simple spices and onions tomatoes to a lovely semi dry dish. Best enjoyed with naan bread or by itself, Tawa Kaleji Fry is quite rich and often goes heavy on digestion. But the delicious taste and the burning spices makes it all worth it. Just make sure, you keep the remaining part of your meal light, to enjoy this delicacy to the fullest. We often added small bits of kaleji/liver to our mutton curries at home. It was for those little ones in the family who didn’t like or couldn’t eat the meat. On a regular sunday, that had usually become synonymous to meaty treat day, the regular mutton chops were replaced by a pack of liver. That moment seemed to me like a mystery box challenge or some ingredient challenge in a masterchef competition. It happens sometimes..husbands go overboard when someone sells them Fresh anything. The liver was indeed fresh and tender, but the task was to make a meal out of it. Having tasted Liver Fry only once at the most unlikeliest place, I chose to go by instinct and make a semi dry tawa fry instead of a curry. And Voila! The result .. a delicious spicy Tawa Kaleji Fry!
