Liver Fry is made in different ways - Chettinad type, Kerala type or Madurai type. Mutton Liver fry is a popular dish with Non-vegetarian Indians as it makes a good accoutrement to rice, nan, roti, phulka or as a snack consumed with alcohol.

Cooking Tips: This dish is best made with mutton liver alone. Mutton liver has the right texture and lends itself easy to absorb the spices. Chicken livers will be bland. Dry Roast the spices before you grind them. It helps to bring out the volatile oleoresins from the spices. When selecting curry leaves, aim to get fresh full tender leaves. Every small thing counts in the overall taste. If you prefer a richer recipe, fry curry leaves and a small sprig of drumstick leaves in ghee or clarified butter for the extra rich flavor. Add these roasted leaves along with the freshly chopped coriander leaves in the last step as a garnish. For the authentic Hyderabadi touch, add a small quantity of broken cashew nuts, again roasted in ghee at the time of adding the water.
