Chicken liver gravy | south Indian style liver gravy | Eeral gravy

Chicken liver gravy my mother in law prepared this dish for Sundays breakfast and we had it with hot and fluffy idly. The chicken liver gravy was super spicy and extremely tasty one. Everyone enjoyed it very much. Non veg items should be that spicy and flavorful so that we do not get the smell of it. My MIL will add lots of ginger and garlic paste to over come the non veg smell. Moreover she will grind onion and other things we add to the gravy to a smooth paste and saute in oil well. It gives a nice taste and aroma when we add the ground materials. And also the gravy will be thick enough to eat with idly or dosa. The chicken liver gravy will also goes good with hot rice.
