Today I am first time trying my hands at Mutton Liver, also called Kaleji in Hindi. Lets see how this one turn out.

Liver of Lamb/Mutton is considered very nutritional as it is rich in iron and proteins. However special care should be taken to not overcook it.


  • 4 lbs Mutton Liver
  • 2 Big Onions finely chopped
  • 3 Green Chilli, chopped
  • 3 Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1 Cup Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp julienne Ginger
  • 2 Black Cardamon
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 5-6 Cloves
  • 6-7 Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Red Chili Powder
  • ½ tbsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp Coriander Powder
  • Salt as per taste
  • 2 tbsp Fenugreek Leaves
  • 3 tbsp Oil/Butter


  • Heat oil in a pan and add Black Pepper, Cloves, Cinnamon, Black Cardamon and cumin.
  • Add onions and Ginger Garlic paste, and cook till onions turn golden brown.
  • Add liver to it, and cook on until liver change it’s color.
  • Cook on Low-Med heat now, and add cook liver until all moisture dries up.
  • Add spices, red chili, turmeric and coriander powder. Mix well.
  • When oil start leaving from the sides, add tomatoes.

It’s a nutritional recipe, but to make it more effective and healthy, reduce the amount of oil/butter used. Do not overcook it otherwise it will become rubbery. One thing to remember is that do not cover the lid of pan, when cooking liver.
