- 1 kg chicken livers (large cuts) - كبد الدجاج
- 1 tablespoon ghee (OR 2 tablespoons olive oil) - سمن بلدي
- 1 onion (thinly sliced) - بصلة
- 1 green peppers (thinly sliced) - فلفل أخضر
- vinegar (for washing livers) - خل
- salt (for washing livers) - ملح
- 2 garlic cloves (crushed) - فصوص ثوم
- 3-4 tablespoon pomegranate molasses (good quality) - دبس رمان
- salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
Step by step
- Wash chicken livers well with salted water and vinegar. Drain well.
- In a medium pan, melt ghee or heat olive oil and fry chicken livers on all sides until browned (about 3 minutes). Make sure the oil is hot, in order to prevent the liver from releasing its water (which doesn't allow it to fry). If it does release water, try to discard it.
- Add thinly sliced onions and colored peppers and sauté for about 10 minutes. When sauteed, stir in crushed garlic, salt and pepper.
- Then add pomegranate molasses and leave it to cook for 10 more minutes to thicken. Serve warm. You can serve it on a bed of seasoned yoghurt.
