Notes:


The liver should not be cooked for too long or in too much water or it goes rubbery. When cooking liver always remembers to add the salt when the liver is half cooked which helps the
liver to turn very tender and soft. Adjust the chilli lever to your taste. Using fresh pepper powder and Indian shallots boosts the taste of the dish.
