Goat liver cooking is an art and sadly, quite lost these days. While growing up my mom would often make this spicy mutton kaleji (liver in Hindi) recipe for an indulgent dinner, paired with crispy paratha or rotis. As kids, we could never be happy about this particular meal because, like other kids, we were quite fussy. But later in my teenage years, with much relief for my mother, we developed a certain fondness for this dish and would even await its return to our family dinner menu.

Tips & Tricks for Goat Liver Cooking

Cooking meat is one thing but when you are handling goat liver then there are certain points to remember to get the perfectly textured and delicious mutton liver fry. I have seen my mom cook this mete chorchori while growing up and I also follow the same procedure. I find it relatively much easier that give me the most authentic mete chorchori recipe. Here are some of the major pointers:

  • Pressure cook the Goat Liver – The Liver has high levels of moisture in it, hence the need to cook it carefully or it turns dry and chewy. To ensure the perfect taste and texture, Pressure cook them quickly before adding them to the prepared gravy base
  • Cut the Mutton Liver into small cubes – To allow the goat liver cubes to soak up the flavors perfectly, cut them into small cubes. Similarly cut the potatoes, into small cubes as it would give the dish a uniform look.
  • Be generous with spices to make the Liver Fry appetizing – Mete or liver has a peculiar taste to it, that is often described as somewhat metallic. To avoid that, prepare the gravy base using onion, ginger & garlic cooked with a good amount of whole spices.

Benefits of Mutton Liver

Goat liver is an extremely nutrient-dense and protein-rich food. From what I have heard from my mom and read over the internet, it is rich in Folic Acid and Vitamin A. However, mutton liver also contains high levels of saturated fat and cholesterol. So if you have cardiovascular-related health issues or you have a family history of increased levels of blood cholesterol, you should cut down on consumption of mutton liver recipes.

However, you can always watch out for your health and yet indulge your tastebuds by cooking mutton kaleji recipes like this on special occasions. Both I and my husband are conscious of our health, so we make this once in six months, thus reserving it for a meal to celebrate a life event or so.

Serving Suggestions

While growing up, I have always seen my Ma going the extra step by making crispy parathas to go with Mete Chorchori. Oh! It’s a delicious combo. Nowadays, I have made the healthy-ish switch to chapati or roti instead of parathas.

My husband prefers rice for his meals and goat liver fry makes no difference to that. So, he will have some rice and dal to go with this aloo mete chorchori. You can try serving this with Bengali Basanti Pulao for a royal meal.
