I went with the Swahili title for this tasty dish, felt it was much better than lemony liver.
‘Maini’ is liver and ‘ndimu’ is lemon in Swahili hence the name.
This is one of the easiest beef liver recipes I am ever going to share here.
The liver is tender and full of citrusy flavour you will not be able to get enough of it.
Beef liver is immensely rich in nutrients. It is an amazing source of iron, vitamins A, B complex, copper and protein rich as well as low in calories. It is a worthy addition to your diet.
All you need is about 400g of beef liver, juice of two lemons, a tsp of lemon zest, a tsp of white pepper, salt and garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of salted butter, a tablespoon of all purpose flour,and a small bunch of coriander.
Let’s get started.
Drain the milk and dredge the liver in the flour lightly.
I didn’t add any seasoning as I’d soaked the liver with some salt and also using salted butter ensured the liver was seasoned well enough.
You can serve with your accompaniment of choice.
If you are hesitant about liver this is a great recipe to try out. Just remember to remove the membrane from the liver to ensure it’s soft and able to absorb the flavours well. Soaking the liver in milk also helps remove the metally taste in the liver. You can soak for an hour or two but if in a rush thirty minutes are fine.
This is one easy peasy recipe that’s worth a try.
