Sautéed Gizzard

Hi all. Today I suddenly craved for gizzard masala. We rarely have organ meat. And its either gizzard or liver that i prefer. I like it for its crunch and i choose to add capsicum in the dish to add to the crunchiness. This is a new recipe I experimented today and it’s yummy so sharing it immediately.

Happy cooking 🥘

Gizzard (chicken) 500gm cleaned well and drained

Onions 2 small – chopped

Tomatoe – 1 medium big – chopped

Soy sauce – about 2 tbsp

Green chilly sauce (medium spicy) – 1tbsp (adjust to taste)

Green pepper / capsicum-1 diced

Spring onions- 2 springs


For the marinade-

Garam masala/all spice mix – 1/4 tsp

Ginger-garlic paste – 1 tbsp


Method –

1. Mix the cleaned and drained gizzard with the marinade and a pinch of salt for 10 minutes

2. In a pan heat oil and add onions, when color begins to change to light brown add the chopped tomatoe. Add a pinch of salt. Wait till it mixes in well.

3. Add the green chilly sauce. Saute for 2 minutes

4. Add the marinated mixture to it with soy sauce and chopped spring onions (white portion and a few greens). Stir in and keep covered and cook with half glass hot water for 10-15min.

5. Ensure the gizzards are cooked yet crunchy. Open and keep on medium high heat till the gravy gets coated and thick.

6. Add the remaining spring greens and capsicum. Stir for a minute. Turn off the flame and keep covered for a while.
