  • 1 kg chicken livers (large cuts) - كبد الدجاج
  • vinegar (for washing livers) - خل
  • salt (for washing livers) - ملح
  • 1 tablespoon ghee (OR 2 tablespoons olive oil) - سمن بلدي
  • 2 garlic cloves (crushed) - فصوص ثوم
  • 1/2 yellow pepper (thinly sliced) - فلفل أصفر
  • 1/2 red pepper (thinly sliced) - فلفل أحمر
  • 1 onion (thinly sliced) - بصلة
  • 3-4 tablespoon pomegranate molasses - دبس رمان
  • salt and pepper - ملح و فلفل
  • handful parsley (finely chopped) - بقدونس

Step by step

  1. Wash chicken livers well with salted water and vinegar. Drain well.
  2. 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.
  3. Add thinly sliced onions and colored peppers and sauté for about 10 minutes. Stir in crushed garlic, salt and pepper.
  4. Then add pomegranate molasses and leave it to cook for 10 more minutes to thicken. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve warm. You can serve it on a bed of seasoned yoghurt.
