Healthy and Spicy Chicken Hearts and Livers Masala Curry

Hearts and Livers
Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa
I always try to incorporate Chicken Livers in my diet (due to excellent health benefits). Chicken livers can be good source of nutrition to human liver. But don't just believe me, google for natural liver cleanser diet and you will find Chicken livers, turmeric, Acai Berry on the top of the charts. This spicy curry recipe has two of these healthy ingredients i.e. Chicken Livers and Turmeric.

Hearts and Livers
Many people do not like taste of liver, so I have added few hearts for some flavor and texture.

I have an excellent idea for liver curry leftovers (if you can resist not to finish it all or if you have picky eaters who do not like taste of cooked livers). Just shred the cooked livers and hearts into bite size pieces, top it on tacos with fresh salsa and sour cream to celebrate healthy yet scrumptious Taco Night.

    3. Add chicken hearts first and fry till raw meat texture disappears (about 2 minutes). Keep stirring continuously so that onion mixture does not burn. You can add some water (1 to 2 tbsp) to avoid it sticking to the bottom of pan. Now add chicken livers and fry for another 2 minutes, then add 1 cup water and simmer for 5 minutes.
    Additional Notes
    If you are also cooking chicken gizzards with livers and hearts, I suggest to cook gizzards for 5 minutes before adding in hearts since gizzards take little longer to get tender. If you have pressure cook, pressure cook these for 10 minutes instead of boiling. Increase water if it appears to be drying out.
    Step for Recipe - Hearts and Livers
    4. Once hearts and livers are done to your liking, increase heat so that water (if left any) dry out. Stir fry curry for another 5 minutes or till you see oil separating from the mixture. This step is very important for the success of this recipe, so make sure to fry till oil separates. You can serve these for snack or for main course. And I am sure you will be making'em once again soon. Enjoy!!
Savita's Notes:
Chicken Hearts and Liver Curry goes perfect with Naan Bread or any kind of flat bread and I guarantee that your picky eaters will love it.
