Mint Chuntney Glazed Deep Fried Chicken Gizzard Recipe!!

Do you guys remember bhutuwa/bhuttan (deep fried goat/buff intestines and different parts of stomach)? Ah! it used to be one of my favorites. Unfortunately, I do not see grocery stores selling those here in the United States. I sometimes crave bhutuwa so much that I substitute it with chicken gizzard. Back home, my mother always accompanied yellow peas when making bhutuwa. That seriously was the best bhutuwa I have ever tasted. Anyways, the substitute works and tastes equally good. Here you go guys enjoy this crispy delish :) 

Good Luck :)
