Pork Chilly Fry V. 2.

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)

Step 5:     Cut the meat into cubes or slices (as desired). Immerse the pieces in the stock so that they do not dry out. You can leave it in the stock for a few hours until you are ready to cook further.


Step 6:     Heat the oil in a pan. Add the ginger, garlic, green chillies and sauteé for 2 to 3 minutes so that the flavours of the aromatics are infused in the oil.
