First of all I want to say sorry to all my readers for the late post. I am still on my India vacation and I couldn’t find time to post recipes but I promise when I come back I’ ll post variety of mouthwatering recipes in ST.
“Mutton Liver fry” or “Eeral varuval” is very popular dish in south india. And its one of my favorite too. My mom used to make this every weekends in my chilhood days. She says it’s good for health. And cooking mutton liver is little tricky. It should be soft and juicy. If you overcooked it it will turn out into rubber-like texture. So its all with the trial cooking and practice.
