Salted Pork

chopped onions, kokam and kashmiri chilliesSalted pork is a simple dish to cook up, it hardly takes any time after you finish with the marination part, yet its a tasty dish to snack on. Its also is the way you cook the pork for Fejuada, that will be the next recipe up on the blog. If you joined us on facebook, you would have known that.

Salted Pork Ingredients:

1/2 Kilo Pork
1 Table spoon salt
2 Onions
4 Kashmiri Chillies
4 Kokam can be cut into tiny pieces

Salted Pork Method:

Prior to making the salted pork, the pork needs to be sliced without cutting completely, to help marination, salt it and store it in the fridge for three days.

Once your done with that, its time to slice and dice the meat into slight lager pieces than you would want to eat.
cut the pork into medium pieces
Put a vessel on the fire and add the pork, no need to add any oil as the meat will cook in its own fat.
fry the pork in its own fat
Once it gets hot and begins to stick to the vessel add a little water to avoid that from happening.
add some water to cook the meat
Add the Kokam to the meat and stir it.

Immediately after that you can add the onions and chillies to the salted pork and stir occasionally.

Once the salted pork turns brownish in colour try a piece it should not take more than thirty minutes.

Unbelievably yummy for the simple procedure that it involves to cook it. This pork is also added to Feijoada, that will be the next dish to add to our lovely Goan cuisine recipe collection.
Well done salted pork

    experimentation with food is always recommended :D just make sure you have enough skin of chicken to = the amount of oil from the pork fat... or add some oil but that doesn't make it the same...
