- Finely chop Onion and chop Tomato as well.
- Slit the Green Chillies.
- Heat the oil and fry Potatoes after sprinkling little salt and turmeric powder.
- Once fried and crisp, strain the potato chunks from the oil.
- Now temper the same oil with Bay Leaves, Clove, Cinnamon Stick, Green Cardamom, Black Cardamom, and also Javitri.
- Add Asafoetida to the oil as well.
- Keep the flame on the lower side and cook until the spices emit an aroma.
- At this point, add chopped onion and cook until the onions are properly fried.
- Add chopped tomatoes and also Ginger and garlic paste and cook till the oil separates from the mixture.
- Add a little salt to season the mixture.

- Cover the pan with a lid and keep the flame on the lower side.
- Cook for 5 minutes.
- Add potato chunks and after mixing with a spatula add 1 Cup boiling water to the mixture.
- Cover the pan and cook till the Liver is well cooked and potatoes soften.
- This will take around 10 minutes.
- Open the lid and cook on a high flame to reduce the moisture completely.
- The dish should be a bit mushy which is a charter of Chorchori.
- Once done, add Bengali Garam Masala Powder followed by Ghee and mix lightly.
Do not overcook Mete as it will make it chewy.
You may add Green peas if available.
I have used a lot of Ginger and Garlic in this recipe which is needed to suppress the aroma of the Liver.
Instead of Mutton liver you may use chicken Liver as well.
