Here’s how to make Mutton Kaleji:


  • ½ kg mutton liver
  • 4 to 5 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • ½ cup coriander leaves
  • ¼ cup oil
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tsp kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves)


  • Cut the liver into small pieces and wash thoroughly.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds. Then add onions and saute till they turn nice light brown in colour.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and salt, and cook till they become soft.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and fry well.
  • Add all the powder masalas and mix well. Add water so that the masala does not stick to the pan.
  • When oil starts leaving the sides, add the liver pieces. Mix well and let it cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep on stirring from time to time.
  • Add the kasoori methi.
  • To know if the liver is cooked, take out one piece and check if it tender and not juicy. Don’t overcook else it will become hard.
  • Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves.
  • Served with rice or roti.
