650g pork – cut into small chunks
1 onion – sliced
3 garlic cloves – sliced
Small piece of ginger – chopped
3 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons black pepper powder
1 teaspoon Sri Lankan raw curry powder
¼ teaspoon turmeric
6 - 8 curry leaves
1 x 2.5cm cinnamon stick
4 cardamom pods - split
4 clove – crushed
3 tablespoons oil
3 cups water
Salt to taste
In a medium size bowl, mix chili powder, black pepper powder, Sri Lankan raw curry powder, turmeric & salt with pork pieces and keep it aside.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan in medium heat.
When oil is hot add garlic & ginger, fry it for 1- 2 minutes.
Then add onions and fry it till it’s gets light brown.
Now you can add all the dry spices and fry it nearly for 2minutes.
Add the marinated pork chunks and fry it for nearly 15 minutes on both sides.
After it’s fried, add water, stir the curry and keep the curry on high heat for nearly 15 minutes.
Now the gravy should be little bit thick, so change the heat into medium and again keep it for nearly 15 minutes
Off the heat & taste for salt.
You can have any kind of rice, bread, roti, noodles or what ever you like most.
1. It’s good if you can keep the pork chunks after mixing with spices (to marinate) nearly 15 – 20 minutes.
2. If you don’t like to fry the onions (Temper the onions & garlic with dry spices), you can add all the ingredients and mix together, and cook. (Can ski the first 5 steps.)
3. Also if you don’t like to fry the pork chunks, just skip the 6th step.
