Chicken Liver Curry

If there are quotes that are so reflective, nobody can beat the beauty at which Rumi blends it all. The words and the phrases go on well with each other so well that the whole meaning of the phrase takes a different turnPin. Let’s take this quote that caught my attention a couple of days ago. The quote is so simple, yet very deep and profound. Actually speaking, the beauty of the heart is one which needs an additional insightful view, so that you are able to see it in another person. It is easy to appreciate beauty which is visible to the eyes but to cherish the beauty of the heart, it needs more than an eye to look into. It involves much more than the five sense organs to know how beautiful a person can be from the heart. And yes, while the beauty which catches the eye tends to fade with age, the beauty of the heart stays, in fact grows much more beautiful as it ages… think about it…


Off to the recipe of the day, since I posted the Chicken Liver Roast sometime back, I had a few comments of concern from my fellow blogger friends as to how unhealthy chicken liver can be compared to mutton liver, mainly because of the injections that are provided to chicken these days to quicken up their growth process. Seriously, it did make me feel quite jittery that we have reduced our chicken liver consumption a lot. As soon as I read the comments, I had a little discussion with umma and she was all the more worried. Now, having chicken liver is something very rare. This curry was prepared sometime back to finish off one lone pack of liver in the fridge. Since the curry turned out quite good, I thought of posting it here for my records in case if I make it again or for others, who may be on a look out for finishing off their stock of chicken liver… either way, it helps, right? 😉

  2. I agree Raf on beauty within than what can be seen on the surface. But these days, many fall for the outer than the inner. I love chicken liver, deep fried till crispy and in curries too. But the limitation at home is that my other half does not eat chicken, so the liver does not appear.

    Lovely curry and its certainly my kind with the liver inside.
