Liver Lip Smackers!
What do you need?
3 cups whole-wheat flour, ½ cup cornmeal, 2 tbsp wheat bran, 1 beaten egg, 3 tbsp chicken fat/vegetable oil, 1 cup cooked and coarsely pureed chicken/mutton liver and 1 cup (approx) chicken broth.
What’s cooking?
•    Preheat oven to 180ºC.
•    Sift whole-wheat flour.
•    Mix flour, cornmeal and wheat bran.
•    In separate bowl, beat the egg.
•    Add oil and ½ cup broth to the egg. Beat till well mixed.
•    Add dry ingredients to bowl a little at a time, stirring well.
•    Fold in liver puree.
•    Turn dough out on lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Add more flour if the dough is too sticky or water/broth if it is too dry. (The required quantity of flour and broth might vary slightly according to your cooking area’s temperature and humidity.)
•    Roll out 1/4” thick and cut using cookie cutters or a knife.
•    Place on greased cookie sheet.
•    Bake for 30 minutes or until firm.
•    Store in refrigerator.
Tips to follow
•    Brush cookies with beaten egg or milk before baking for a glazy look.
•    After turning off the oven, leave cookies in it overnight to allow further dehydration and thus, longer shelf life.
•    To cook liver, clean and boil it, the water after boiling can be used instead of chicken broth.
