By , published by Prasadam:
During these winter days in dinner we tend to lean over to some hot oily food when the temperature hovers near about 10o C. A traditional dish "mete chorchori" [liver curry] is one of the best recipe for the busy weekdays when you do not want to spend much time in cooking nor buying junk meals. One try can fetch you to the kitchen every time, I bet.
