Pork Masala

Total Cooking Time

35 minutes



This is a special recipe of pork which actually melts in your mouth. As the name suggests, this pork curry is really a special one where I had used some secret ingredients. Here the pork is cooked initially in a pressure cooker and is then transferred to a kadai or pan for slow cooking, so that the complete flavor of the curry gets coated with the pork pieces evenly.

I had used drumstick stem in this recipe to enhance the flavor of the dish. The outer layer of the stem is taken using a knife and is them added along with the ingredients to be grinded. The next special ingredient used is the fenugreek seeds. The addition of fresh ginger and garlic along with the other ground ingredients provides marvelous taste in each single bite of this curry.

The total cooking time is 1 hour and this recipe can serve 6 persons. This aromatic gravy of pork goes well with rice, special kind of rice, chapatis, etc. You can prepare this recipe for any occasions. If you prefer less gravy curry, then you can dry roast the pork in the same kadai for some extra time so that you will get a tasty pork roast.
