Hello all the readers ...How all you are doing? I was suddenly disappeared once again..It was a family emergency and family comes first...With God's grace and everyone's blessings we are able to overcome the hard time...Sometimes I sit back and think why these hard times comes in life? However, this time I got the answer of my question...Hard time shows who is your real well wisher and who are not! The picture was crystal clear...Some people will show that they are really concerned about you and end up giving you some 'gyan' (lecture). Some people won't turn up during your hard times and once you are out of it they will come and ask thousand questions.  So it is important to identify those peoples and beware of them in future -- Lesson learnt during hard times...:) 
There are few real well-wishers who will stand next to you and help you to overcome the hard times...


While talking about family, let's share one of our family favourite dish Chicken Liver Masala.. When I came to Bangalore and went to buy chicken with my husband, I saw a surprising thing that people buying chicken but not taking the chicken liver. I asked my husband what's the reason behind this? Even he couldn't give me a concrete answer. He said I am seeing the same thing for past few years and added may be they do not like chicken liver.. I couldn't believe that they don't like the taste of chicken liver!! Is it true? Does anyone know the reason? Anyways, due to this reason we used to get good quantity of chicken liver from the chicken shop anytime. Chicken liver masala was our anytime favourite dish which goes well with roti, naan or paratha. We prefer adding potato to this chicken liver masala as you all know Bengali's affinity towards potato :)...

  1. I have heard that liver is actually not good, since most of the impurities in the chicken are a part of it and can cause infections... I am not sure of the reason. We as a whole don't like liver so I hardly buy them, I prefer the gizzards instead... Love the addition of potato to your delicious looking amsala...

  3. I have heard people say eating the liver and gizzard is not good although I cant think of any reason for that! Most of the shops do not give these unless we ask for them - may be its their way of making extra money by selling them separate:)

    Long time since I have eaten liver masala - looks great!
