Kaleji Fry Masala – The Eid ul Azha Relevance
Mutton liver fry Indian style or kaleji fry masala is a traditional dish of the Muslims of the Indian subcontinent. It is a popular street food too. Traditionally, it is cooked on a cast iron tawa combined with other offals like kidneys, lungs and testicles. It’s the first dish usually prepared in every Muslim home at the time of Eid ul Azha or the Festival of Sacrifice.
It is a quick and easy stir fry that tastes delicious especially when prepared with fresh meat. You can make kaleji fry masala with chicken liver too as it is cheaper and more acceptable to urban palates and kids. Read on for nutritional value of Kaleji Fry Masala.
I have been relishing mutton liver fry at home ever since I was a child. But then there are some things you only understand after growing up.
A popular belief is that eating liver is not fit because it stores toxins in the body. The fact is that while the role of the liver is to neutralise toxins, it doesn’t store them. It is packed with protein which helps maintain and build body tissues, muscles, hair and nails.
Moderate consumption of liver (once or twice a fortnight) is beneficial to health because of its nutrition profile. It’s the excessive consumption that can be harmful due to its cholesterol content. Patients of gout and liver stones should completely avoid eating offal.
I also learnt that the mutton liver is the best and most concentrated source of Vitamin B12.
Why Vitamin B12 is necessary for us?
Vitamin B12 deficiency causes a number of nervous system disorders in our bodies – difficulty in focusing and remembering, anxiety, numbness in limbs, loss of balance and depression. Compared to carrots and apples (which are rich sources of micronutrients), the nutrients in meat and organ meat occur in exceedingly higher levels.
Maybe that’s why in some traditional cultures, only organ meats were consumed and lean meat was discarded. Today, to the contrary, we throw away the offal which are saturated with nutrients.
- To get the ‘fried’ effect cook the mutton liver in its own juices, avoid adding water or stock.
- Stir the mutton liver often while it’s cooking to avoid charring or burning it.
- Soak the kaleji pieces in water with turmeric for 30 minutes. This neutralises the strong flavours generally associated with the mutton liver.
- Do not add too much water while cooking the liver or overcook it, that makes it tough and chewy.
