Mutton Liver Curry / Eeral Kulambu


Already I have shared few liver recipes (stir-fry) and now this one is a curry recipe which can be served as a main dish for steamed rice along with rasam and boiled egg or omelette.

My aunty use to prepare this very often at home, mostly on Wednesdays we could find this Mutton liver curry at her home. I love this curry, but for almost a long time I forget this curry and today morning when I found mutton liver lying in my refrigerator, planned to prepare this recipe.

It is a simple, delicious, and healthy and consumes less time to prepare. Let us move on to the recipe…

  1. I first had lamb liver when I lived in India – it was also curried. I loved it. I am happy to have a new and authentic recipe for a dish that brings back so many memories of our time in Delhi. Now to find some good quality lamb’s liver!
