How to make Indian pork curry
First, cook pork alongside onions, garlic, ginger, and a few spices like ground turmeric, ground coriander, garam masala and red chili powder. If you love coconut, add about a cup to make this curry more delicious. It also adds a beautiful crunchy texture to the curry which I really love. Again, fresh coconut is the way to go here, no dried or frozen ones. Trust me, the extra effort brings in more deliciousness.
Now, the cut of pork for this curry. I prefer either shoulder or leg roast that’s guaranteed to give you that perfect melt-in-your-mouth texture. Once pork is cooked, you can move onto the next step – tempering the spices.
To make the tempered spices for this Indian pork curry, heat up a little oil in a large frying pan, and sauté a few dried spices like bay leaves, cinnamon sticks and fennel seeds. Brown some onions followed by stir frying the ground spices like ground turmeric, ground coriander, garam masala and red chili powder.
Now, you’ll need to add in a little water to make thick sauce. Simmer this mixture for about 2-3 minutes. The cooked pork along with a handful of chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves goes in next, and let this simmer for about 4-5 minutes.
Finally, garnish with more coriander leaves, and serve warm with rice, parathas, etc.
A super easy recipe to make a comforting dinner everyday of the week.
