Pork Chilly Fry V. 2.

Pork Chilly Fry

The recipe for Pork Chilly Fry V. 2. is a slight variation from the Goan preparation. It turns out yum and I do not even need to invite my three kids (hubby included) to the table. They are at it from the word go. The plates all cleaned up in 5 minutes! My five-year-old is so much in love with this dish that he demands for ‘Poke Chili Fly’ even if we are dining out at a vegetarian restaurant. (If you want to try another version, click here)

  1. I think your recipe looks good enough but as a blue blooded Goan, I don’t believe that artificial flavors should be used in Goan cooking. Stock cubes are considered artificial flavors. The spices used should give you the right flavors.
    This is just my opinion

    • At the outset you must consider that you are not the only blue blooded Goan around.

      This recipe does not use stock cubes as you have mentioned but it uses sauces. This is a restaurant style preparation. You really should read the Head Notes.

      Also, if you are interested we do have a blue blooded version. It’s here >> https://www.bigfattummy.com/2017/10/pork-chilly-fry-1/

      You are entitled to your opinion but please research before you comment. Thank You and I hope you’ll keep visiting. No Hard Feelings !
