I made this recipe a week ago. One of my all time favorite pork curries. It is a really simple and easy recipe but the taste is like out of the world. You would end up wiping your plate clean and even your fingers, if you are like me who likes to eat with their fingers.
This pork curry has been inspired from the Northeast. It has very little spice and it’s the magic of ginger and garlic and the beautiful meat itself that makes it so delicious.
I made this in a pressure cooker and don’t worry it won’t hamper the taste. It would still taste delicious with a much decrease in your cooking time. Also, the ingredients used in this dish are always available in any Indian kitchen, maybe, except for the star,i.e, the pork. But, nonetheless, these ingredients are available in all supermarkets so no worries in that department.
The best part about making this recipe is you would hardly need any extra oil, because the fat in the pork would melt in the cooking process and make the curry rich with flavor.
The recipe’s right below:
500 gms (slightly smaller than medium size cuts)
Mustard Oil – 1 tsp
Spinach – 500 gms, roughly chopped
Onion – 1 medium, thinly sliced
Potato – 1 medium, cut into 4 equal cubes (optional)
Green chillies – 3-4, slit in half
Ginger & Garlic paste – 1 1/2 tsp
Meat masala – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric – 1/3 tsp
Coriander powder – 1/3 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/3 tsp
Salt to taste
Heat the oil in the cooker. Put in the onions and green chillies and saute till onions are slightly brown. Throw in the potato cubes, ginger and garlic paste and saute for a minute.
Put in the pork and stir for a minute then put in all the dry masalas. Sprinkle some salt. Keep stirring from time to time so that it doesn’t stick at the bottom and everything gets sauteed equally. Continue for 7-9 minutes then pour in just enough water to half of the pork in it. The spinach will leave water too.
Then put in the chopped spinach on top of the sizzling pork and close the lid. Cook it in low-medium flame. Wait for 5 whistles and check if it’s cooked as to your liking.
Give it a few more whistles if you feel it’s under cooked and add salt as per your liking.
