Lamb Liver and mushroom stir fry


Bored of cooking lamb liver following the traditional recipe, thought of doing something different. Found out some mushrooms lying in the refrigerator, so planned to make a dish combining mushrooms and liver. This liver and mushroom stir fry was done by using the ingredients which came to my mind by that time of cooking. It was really delicious and awesome.
