Wash the goat brain thoroughly with water at least 3-4 times. Be careful when washing them, because they are very delicate.

Add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt to the brain and mix gently so that the masala is coated all over the brain and let it sit for 5-7 minutes.

Grind black pepper, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, garlic cloves and ginger in the mixer. See to that it is course and not a fine paste. Now add the onions and run the mixer for two times and switch it off.

Now add the ground paste to the brain, mix gently so that the paste is covered all over the brain. Let the marinated brain sit for another 10 minutes.

Heat oil in a pan [wide pan] on medium flame. When the pan is hot enough, add the brain along with the masala.

Let the brain cook on medium flame; flip the brain gently so that it cooks evenly on all the sides. Cook the brain for about 10 minutes or until well done as shown in the photo.

Delicious and mouth-watering Goat Brain Fry is ready to be enjoyed. You can serve this quick brain fry with simple Rasam rice or sambar rice.
