Christmas is approaching fast and is almost round the corner. That’s why i wanted to share a Kerala Pork Curry for this festive occasion. It is comparatively very easy to cook pork and the end product looks so tempting and appetizing. Really worth the effort. The texture, the color and the vibrant flavorful aroma are beyond words.

What makes Kerala Pork Curry unique and distinct is the traditional style of cooking – boiled pork pieces are slow cooked in a spicy aromatic masala gravy until thick and done. All the fat oozing out from the pork bits form a glistening shiny layer around the masala making the dish even more gorgeous. This is a real treat for your taste buds. I usually use pork belly for the dish that is full of fat. And one vital point, make sure that your pork is cooked well.

    Why average? What does one do if you do not have a pressure cooker? I think it might be great if someone could tell me how to cook this without a pressure cooker.

    curry was very good. but i reduced the amount of chilly powder to 2tsp and it was still spicy. 2 tbsp of chilly powder is too much for one`s digestive system.
