  • Transfer the marinated pork to a deep pot with a lid for covering. Cook on medium- low heat for 45 minutes with the lid onpork-curry-recipe_011
  • After 45 minutes of cooking you would see that the meat has left out quite a bit of water along with fat. Turn off the heatpork-curry-recipe_012
  • Drain the residue liquid to a shallow pan.
  • On high heat boil off all the water so that only the fat remains (it does not look appealing at this stage! But cooking pork in it’s own fat does enhance it’s taste)pork-curry-recipe_002

I have used the fat of the pork itself to cook the gravy. If that doesn’t appeal to you, you could always use oil instead. (But try not to use both the fat and oil together, pork is a very fatty meat, and can make the curry very greasy)

When cooking pork, always remember that it is a salty meat by default. So be careful about how much salt you put in there. I have used ginger garlic paste in this recipe and the exact amount of salt specified in the marinade section and didn’t have to use additional salt after that.
