Was on my daily evening walk when I suddenly heard a long forgotten but familiar sound from my childhood of a man shouting on top of his lungs - bheja kaleji wala. I left my walk and immediately ran to the guy double quick and bought the whole kando (trachea) of offals from him. Had offals after an extremely very long time.

    If you are going to cook at 10am remove the marinated offals from the fridge at 8am.
    Peel wash cut potatoes in cubes.
    Add pinch of salt to the cut potatoes and mix well.
    Put the gas on highest flame setting for half a minute and then reduce the gas on medium flame setting to deep fry the salted cut potatoes till golden brown in a non stick frying pan.
    Strain excess oil off the fried potatoes and use the same oil to fry onions.
    If required add more oil so that while frying onions don’t burn.
    After a couple of minutes of frying the onions add a pinch of salt to the onions that are being fried mix well and fry till onions are brown.
    Add grated tomatoes mix well and sauté for a few seconds on lowest flame setting.
    Add marinated offals mix well and sauté for a few seconds.

    After a couple of minutes shut off the gas but don’t open the lid of the pressure cooker till all steam escapes.
    If there is too much water left then put the pressure cooker back on gas highest flame setting till the water evaporates but keep stirring constantly so that the offals don’t get burned.
