Mutton Kaleji Fry Recipe: How to Make at Home

Mutton Kaleji Fry Recipe is very easy to make and delicious to eat.

If you are bored of cooking same chicken or mutton curries, you can try this mutton kaleji fry recipe or bhuni kaleji masala, as we call it at our home.

Kaleji might be having several names – Liver (in English) or Yakrit (in Hindi) – but when it comes to taste, it’s terrific. It’s one of my favourites in non-vegetarian too. Whenever my father goes to bring mutton or chicken meat, he knows very well Kaleji or goat’s liver has to be in the list, by default πŸ˜€ . And then I would sit and enjoy the mom-made Bhuni Kaleji masala with Arhar dal (toor dal or split and skinned pigeon peas) and chapathi, my favourite combination with the Kaleji masala.

I made this mutton Kaleji masala with mom’s recipe, recently, and it turned out to be fantastic! I along with my family, loved it πŸ™‚ … made my heart grooving!!

This Kaleji fry recipe or bhuni kaleji masala is very easy. Anyone who has just started to cook can make it. Just keep in mind, the kaleji or goat’s liver doesn’t take much time when you are cooking it in pressure cooker; two to three whistles are maximum. My advice would be, whenever you make it in pressure cooker, allow only 1 whistle on high flame, and then cook for around 6-7 minutes on low flame.

I have used tomatoes too as I like this veggie. You can skip it completely.

There is no need to put much water too, a small cup will be okay as Kaleji itself leaves water while being cooked.

Here is an easy guide to the recipe of Mutton Kaleji, which involves Indian spices, less time-taken and delicious taste! For preparation of Bhuni Kaleji recipe, it will take 10 minutes (cutting, slicing of onions, tomatoes and washing of Kaleji); the time taken to cook the Kaleji fry is approx 30 minutes.
