Kolija Bhaja / Fried Liver
Kolija Bhaja / Fried Liver is a very simple but very tasty dish. I had this in a wedding and just love the dish. I cut the liver into thin pieces but you can cut liver into your desire size. Instead of green chillies you can use dry chilli flake but I like the flavour green chilli more. Please don’t overcook liver, overcook makes liver chewy. Hope you will try this simple recipe to enjoy the flavour.
