Slow Cooked Pork Curry

Slow Cooked Pork Curry

On an occasion when I had other things to tend to at home and didn’t want to stand around for a lot of time in the kitchen, I made this short-cut preparation of boneless pork. I made it with commonly used spices and kept it to slow cook which allowed me to attend to other chores and hence I’ve named this dish a Slow Cooked Pork Curry. (you could also try Hubby’s Pork Curry – which is quite similar to this – click here)

Serves: 8 to 10 Persons

Prep. Time: 20 Mins. + Marination

Cooking Time: 70 Mins.


  • Pork (boneless, cubed) – 1 ½ Kg.
  • Onion (chopped) – 4 medium
  • Green Chillies (slit) – 3 to 4
  • Cloves – 8 to 9
  • Cinnamon – 1 ½ inch
  • Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp.
  • Black Pepper Corns – ½ tsp.
  • Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder – 4 tsp.
  • Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp.
  • Ginger – 1 ½ inch
  • Garlic – 18 medium cloves
  • Palm Vinegar – 4 tbsp.
  • Tamarind (soaked in 2 cups hot water) – 1 big lime sized
  • Oil – 2 tbsp.
  • Salt – 1 tbsp.

Step 1:     Take the cloves, cinnamon, cumin, pepper corns along with the turmeric and chilli powder and dry grind to a fine powder. Keep aside and in the same jar grind the ginger and garlic to a fine paste.

Step 2:     Wash and drain the pork cubes and then add the salt, ginger-garlic paste, the powdered spices and the vinegar and mix well. Add the chopped onion and 2 tbsp. oil and mix again. Leave aside for at least an hour.

Step 3:     Later, transfer to a heavy bottomed vessel and place on medium-high heat. Sauté till the meat releases its juices, changes colour and a nice aroma arises (about 10 minutes).
