Vegetarian's Liver Fry - Meat Alternate Recipe!!!








Vegetarian's Liver Fry:

Vegan Liver Fry. Meat Alternate dish. Vegan Liver. Vegetarians liver. Vegetarian's Mutton fry. Vegan Meat Fry. Vegetarians Meat!!!

Now don't get me wrong I don't mind if many people turn to vegetarianism or veganism. Just more meat for me:) The day, I can't find a decent chicken/fish in the market...what I need as a carnivore, I will begin eating the herbivores, he he. They're always tempting me' how healthy they are on their 'meatless diets' ha ha...just kidding:)

Lentils turnd into LiverThis could be the best meat alternate food for vegans. I rarely eat meatless food, but would never appreciate them...as it demands heavy amount of spices to disguise it. But this vegan liver fry is of different league, they are totally tasteee. I virtually scanned this recipe...years before from my Mommy's Chettinad collections.

Ingredients:

For Liver:

Whole Green gram/ Mung dhall/ Pachai payaru/ Pesaru Pappu 1 cup
Green chilies/ dry red chilies 5-7
Ginger 1" grated
Garlic 2 cloves minced
Salt
Fennel seeds
Curry leaves few
Cilantro leaves few
Oil for shallow frying(optional)

For Masala or Gravy:

Onion 1 large grated
Ginger 2" grated
Garlic 2 cloves minced
Tomato 1 chopped
Salt
Turmeric 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1/2 spoon
Oil for stir-frying.

Spices to be Toasted & Powdered:

Coriander seeds 2 spoons
Fennel seeds 1 spoon
Poppy seeds 1 spoon
Cumin 1 spoon
Pepper 1 spoon
Dry coconut 2 spoons.

Method:

Wet grind the ingredients mentioned for liver, except oil. Now steam cook this batter for about 10-12 minutes.

Cut them into bite size pieces.

Either shallow fry them or just skip this procedure...its up to you.

In a separate pan, heat oil and stir-fry the masala ingredients. Wet grind these.

In a wide wok, heat oil...bring this wet-ground masala and powdered spices together...fry real good. Now throw in the vegan liver pieces...fry over high heat, till you believe its done.

Enjoy with steam cooked rice:)

Dear Malar
When I read the title I thought you were using " Vegetarian's liver" idiomatically and actually meant liver of lamb, goat, beef et al who are vegetarians.
My wife says here is another one (you) in your camp who believes , being on the top of the food chain one can eat any thing one wants..God has created lamb , goat etc to covert cellulose to protein for us and spared us from eatring grass whole day !!! Keep an watch on my blog : truth and imagination..I will post one shortly " Deer, forest, you and Me".
This recipe is out of the world, I can feel that...I am going to make it very shortly..not for my vege friends, but for self
Have a nice day
