Do You Know?

Goat liver has a strong flavor. It should have a bright color with a moist but not slimy surface and a fresh smell. Prepare it the day you buy it, or store it loosely wrapped in the refrigerator for no more than 1 day. Goat liver is available in supermarkets frozen. It is available fresh in butcher shops.
Goat liver can replenish the blood, tonify the liver and improve eyesight.

I tried the Bhuna keema kaleji last night and found the recipe to be excellent.The ingredients were easily available and the cooking method was simple and easy. The only change that I made was that after adding the water, I placed the cooking vessel on a tawa on slow fire and let it cook for a while.

ma`m can i use tamato pury instead of yogurt?????

Nidhi Raizada said... you know every ingredient contributes to the taste and flavor of the dish...I do not use tomato with keema kaleji because tomato has more strong flavor which may dominate the outcome.


Nice recipe Tomato/yoghurt both gave nice results I prefer more yoghurt to add in this rather than tomato also if you cook on coal/log fire it would be much tastier if these are not available burning coal ka immerse karna will do the trik to flavour this.SUSHIL MATHUR
