Pork Curry - Kerala Style

Spicy Pork Curry - Kerala style by Jen
Pork - 1 kg (I usually remove most of the fat)

1 tsp red chilly powder (if you like it hot u can put 1 ½ tsp)
1 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
¾ tsp turmeric powder

3 tsp coriander powder
1 tbsp whole black pepper
1 cardamom

2 pcs cinnamon (of 1” each)
6 cloves
½ tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp finely chopped ginger
3 large cloves of Garlic - finely chopped
3 medium sized onions - chopped
3 medium sized Tomatoes - chopped
Curry leaves - 4 stems
Chicken/beef stock powder – ½ cube/½ tsp
Vinegar - 3 tsp
Soya sauce - 2 tsp
Salt - As reqd
Oil - 2 tbsp


Cut pork into medium size pieces, wash and then cook with some salt and a pinch of turmeric powder in a pressure cooker upto 1 whistle – no need to add water since the water from the pork will come out anyway.

Grind together red chilly powder, black pepper, coriander powder, turmeric powder, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and cumin seeds and keep aside.

Heat 2-3 tbsp of oil in a pan. Splutter 2 sprigs of curry leaves. Then add ginger, garlic and sauté then after 15 seconds add the onions and fry till golden brown (and onions translucent).
Add the ground masala and sauté on a low flame for a few minutes, until the raw smells goes – make sure you don’t burn the spices.

Add tomatoes and a pinch of salt and sauté for around 10 mins until the tomatoes get all mashed up and oil starts separating from the masala.
Now add the cooked pork, vinegar, soya sauce, chicken stock powder, salt and 1 cup of water and stir well.
Cover and cook on a medium flame for approx 10 – 15 min. stirring occasionally. Then add remaining 2 sprigs of curry leaves, stir well and cook for another 5 - 10 mins.You can garnish with coriander leaves just before serving.
