A simple, easy to make and delicious Goat brain masala / stir fry.


  • 2 Goat Brains cleaned and chopped roughly
  • 2 Tablespoon sesame seed oil / vegetable oil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon fennel seeds

  • 1/2 Teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste

1. Place goat brains in a pot and add 1 cup of hot water to the brain. Add a pinch of turmeric powder. Close the pot with a lid and let the brain remain in hot water for 5 minutes
