Mete Chorchori (Liver Curry)

IMG_9925Liver (especially goat liver) is a common health food given in Bengal for people with depleted red blood count (e.g. anemia). Since I am going through a blood disorder, I cooked this for myself.


  1. image500gm liver cut into cubes as shown in the photograph
  2. 2 medium sized potato cut into cubes
  3. 1 large onion finely chopped
  4. 1 medium tomato coarsely chopped
  5. 1 tbsp. ginger paste
  6. 1 tsp. garlic paste
  7. 2,3 bay leaves / tej-patta
  8. Turmeric powder
  9. 1tsp. chili powder
  10. 1tsp. garam masala powder (as shown here)
  11. Few green chilies


Heat oil in a pan. Fry the potato cubes till they turn golden brown and remove. Now temper the oil with bay leaf and add chopped onions. Fry till the edges become brown.

Now throw the liver cubes in it and fry them along with the onion on high heat for a minute or two. Once the liver changes its color into dark brown lower the heat and add tomato, ginger garlic paste followed by turmeric and chili powder. 

Now add fried potato cubes and keep frying it all together. If you see the spices are getting stuck to the bottom of your pan, drizzle some water over it.  Add salt and a little sugar to it. Give a nice mix. Add green chilies now. Cook it covered till liver and potatoes are done.

It should not take more than 5-7 minutes. Sprinkle garam masala powder and finish it off.

Serve with hot chapattis or phulkas.
