I feel a sense of accomplishment, by posting this recipe. I’ve been getting requests for Pork recipes for so long, mostly during Christmas and Easter time. Every time, I replied to you with some excuse or the other.

The reason why I didnt post is… for starters I do NOT eat Pork. I’ve this habit, I dont want to attach any prefix to it like whether it’s a good or bad habit, let’s just say, I’ve a habit of shutting down my mind towards things which I don’t like or I don’t find interesting. Now that I’ve said it out loud here, it doesn’t sound like a good habit,hhmm… That reminds me, I should speak out my thoughts once in a while, to get a clear perspective on it. Most of the time all the ideas and thoughts sounds great and wonderful inside my head, but once I say it out loud, it sounds absurd at times. Does it happen to you also or am I just a weirdo?

Anyways, coming back to our recipe, I felt it was time for me to get over this thing with Pork and cook it. I got the recipe from my friend Priya. I’ve heard great reviews about her Pork recipe and she was very happy to share it with us.

I was kinda excited to cook it, the excitement to cook with something that’s completely new to me. Since I don’t eat it, I didnt do a taste test and I was anxiously waiting for feedback from Jose and some other friends. Well, the feedback was great! The pork was tender with right amount of masala and flavour. It seems the fat in the pork adds more flavour to the dish and that’s what differentiates it from Chicken and Beef.

Hope you get to try this for Easter and like it too. It’s good as a starter or also as a side dish for plain rice, ghee rice, Pulao etc;
