Fried Pork Curry Recipe

Fried Pork Curry Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 6

1 kg pork, cut into cubes

3 tablespoons cooking oil

12 curry leaves

1/4 teaspoon fenugreek seeds

2 medium onions, chopped finely

4 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger

3 tablespoons curry powder

1-2 teaspoons chili powder

Salt to taste

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 tablespoon tamarind pulp

1 1/2 cups hot water

5 cm cinnamon stick

4 cardamom pods

1 cup thick coconut milk

 

Method :

Heat up a large wok with oil and stir-fry the fenugreek seeds and curry leaves until they start to brown. Do not let them burn. Add garlic and onion. Fry over low heat until the onion is softened. Add curry powder, ginger, salt, chili powder, vinegar and pork. Fry over high heat. Stir thoroughly to ensure that the meat is fully coated with the mixture of spices.

 

Squeeze tamarind pulp into the hot water, strain and remove the seeds. Add the cinnamon, cardamom and strained tamarind liquid to the meat and cook over low heat with the lid. Cook until the pork is tender. It should takes about an hour. Add the thick coconut milk and cook for a further 10 minutes, uncovered. Pour the gravy into another saucepan, and return the pork to be fried until nicely brown. Add back the gravy to the saucepan and cook, uncovered until gravy thickens. Serve hot with steamed white rice.
