Homemade Kaleji Curry: A Cozy Indian Delight











Whip up a heartwarming batch of Kaleji Curry right in your own kitchen. This velvety Indian classic combines rich spices, tender liver, and a tangy twist, all ready in 45 minutes.


Step 1: Fry the Onions

Start your Kaleji Curry adventure by heating a generous amount of oil in a thick-bottomed pan. Once hot, add the finely sliced onions and fry until they're golden brown. This step is crucial for laying down the flavor foundation of your curry, so make sure those onions are perfectly caramelized.
Pro Tip: Use a heavy pan to avoid burning and ensure even cooking.

Step 2: Adding the Main Ingredients

With the onions done, it’s time to introduce the kaleji (liver) to the pan alongside the minced ginger and garlic, chopped tomatoes, whisked yoghurt, chopped green chillies, and a mix of spices. This combination will ensure a burst of flavors. Fry everything for about 5-10 minutes before adding the water, which will deglaze the pan and pick up all the delicious, flavorful bits.
Pro Tip: Fry on medium heat to avoid burning the spices.

Step 3: Simmering to Perfection

Once you've added the water, bring the curry to a boil and then let it simmer on a medium flame. This slow cooking process is what will make the kaleji utterly tender and imbue it with all the rich flavors of the spices, ginger, and garlic. The end goal is a thick, flavorful gravy that coats the liver perfectly.
Pro Tip: Cover the pan to prevent drying out and cook evenly.

Step 4: Garnish and Serve

The moment we've all been waiting for – your Kaleji Curry is now ready to hit the dinner table. Turn off the heat, garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves for that herbal freshness, and serve immediately with warm naan or roti. The result? A satisfying, comforting bowl of curry that promises to transport you straight to the heart of India with every bite.
Pro Tip: Serve with lemon wedges for added zing.
