Chicken gizzard or mangai-yiral are secondary stomachs present in birds to grind the food before digestion. They are hard in nature and can be used in curries. I just tried it with chettinad masala and it was just a perfect side-dish. Have it with Sambar, curd rice, or just any dish, it is tasty. This recipe goes directly to CWS- coriander seeds guest hosted by Deepa event by Priya.
