Sri Lankan cuisine is famous for its one of a kind devilled dishes. There are popular seafood devilled dishes like devilled prawns, devilled cuttlefish and devilled fish. Then, there are devilled chicken and devilled pork. Believe it or not, there are devilled vegetable dishes too. I already added devilled mushroom recipe for rasakama readers and few more awesome devilled dishes are coming up soon.
The recipe I am sharing today isn’t a dish that I have tried somewhere else even though the taste is quite similar to devilled chicken that can be found in some Sri Lankan restaurants. Keep in mind that there are several different ways to make devilled chicken. For today’s recipe, I haven’t used chilli paste, so if you have already tried my devilled recipes with chilli paste, the taste of this recipe is quite different as it is made in a different way. Having said that this is a dish that you can make without hustle and bustle within a short time period.
- 600g of chicken liver-cut in to pieces
- 1 medium size onion- cut in to cubes
- 3 garlic cloves- chopped
- 1 inch ginger root- chopped
- ¼ black pepper powder
- 1 tsp of chilli flakes
- 1-2 leeks – cut the white portion into mini logs of 2cms
- 2 tbsp of ketchup or any other tomato sauce
- 2 tbsp of soy sauce
- Salt to taste
- Cooking oil
Stir fry chicken liver pieces on high heat. It will take some time as chicken liver takes some time to cook. Then, remove the pieces from the pan and keep them on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Then, in a separate pan, pour some oil and fry chopped ginger and chopped garlic for few seconds. Add the stir fried chicken liver pieces to the pan. Now, add soy sauce, ketchup, black pepper powder and chilli flakes. Mix well. Sprinkle some salt to the leaks and onions. Finally, put those to the pan and mix well with all other ingredients. Let everything cook for few minutes and turn off the heat.
