Vutan (Chicken Gizzard Stir fry)


When you think of Vutan, who doesn't like the smell and yumminess that it brings to your table? I have always loved this delicious dish. Back home, it has been always served as a snack to go with a drink and/or always treated as one item that go along when people are invited for a feast. Out here, I haven't tried much to look around for it, but since I found Chicken Gizzard at a grocery store, I am loving it! You can serve vutan with beaten rice or puffed rice or even rice in general. If you are a fan of vutan, check out the recipe below.

Makes about 6 - 8 servings
Vutan (Chicken Gizzard Stir Fry)

Ingredients Needed

  • Chicken Gizzard - 1.5 lbs.
  • Vegetable Oil/ Olive Oil - 2 tsp
  • Salt, Chili powder, cumin powder and turmeric powder to taste
  • Water - 1 cup

Steps to follow

If the chicken gizzard is frozen, defrost it before cooking. If you have the defrosted one, cut into small pieces (may be about an inch or half-inch depending how you like it).

In a pressure cooker, add all of the chicken gizzard and water. Sprinkle little salt and turmeric powder so it gets a nice color and taste when it's cooked. Try to have 4 - 5 whistles so it is cooked well enough.

Now that it's all cooked, drain the water.

Note: Usually, once it's all cooked, I try not to stir fry all if we have 2-3 people since it gets soggy. So, once it's all cooked, I try to use what you need and store the leftover in the fridge. The one that goes into the fridge, you can store for 2 - 3 days.

When the oil is heated, add the cooked chicken gizzard into the skillet.

Turn off the heat. Vutan is ready to be served. As mentioned above, it goes well with puffed rice or beaten rice.

Hope you like it! Enjoy!
