Recipes ROGAN JOSH CHICKEN LIVERS WITH GREEN CHUTNEY & POPPADUMS
ROGAN JOSH CHICKEN LIVERS WITH GREEN CHUTNEY & POPPADUMS
Spicy chicken livers are a fabulous mid-winter treat for fireside snacking. Now, normally spicy livers are livened up with just a touch of chilli. But that’s not how we roll because there’s so much more you can do – like introducing more complex curry flavours. Our Rogan Josh curry blend sure hits the right notes with its warming coriander, cumin, chilli and cinnamon. To that we added fennel, cardamom, cloves and curry leaves to make for a heady medium-heat spice blend that’s a treat with any meat. And because more is more, we up it another notch by serving these livers with a punchy fresh green chutney.
- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- FOR THE CHICKEN LIVERS
- 1 onion, very finely chopped
- 4 tbs ghee (clarified butter)
- FOR THE GREEN CHUTNEY
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 20g punnet coriander, stems, leaves
- 2 tbs Cape Herb & Spice ROGAN JOSH
- 2 mild Serrano green chillies, deseeded
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 20g punnet mint, leaves only
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 cup water
- 4 tbs fresh lemon juice
- 500g of chicken livers
- 1 tsp sugar
- generous pinch of salt
- pinch of salt
- METHOD -
To make the chicken livers, fry the onion in two tablespoons ghee until soft. Add the garlic and Cape Herb & Spice Rogan Josh Exotic Spice and fry for a further minute. Add the tomatoes, sugar and water, cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes until the sauce is thick. If it is too watery, simply lift the lid for the last few minutes. Taste sauce and add salt as needed. (Cook’s note: if you want the sauce silky smooth, use a stick blender to blitz it at this point.) Once the sauce is done, heat a separate pan, add the remaining two tablespoons ghee and fry chicken livers. You want them browned outside, but still just a little bit pink inside. Add the chicken livers to the curried tomato sauce base and heat through.
To make the green chutney, blitz all of the chutney ingredients together in a blender or food processor to form a smooth paste. You could also use a pestle and mortar to do this.
Serve the Rogan Josh chicken livers warm with poppadums, full cream yoghurt and green chutney and let everyone build their perfect bite.
This recipe serves four as a snack or light starter. To turn it into a more substantial bite, replace the poppadums with warmed naan breads.
