So i searched the net for pork vindaloo kerala style ( cause thats the killer shit duh! ) and i found some four totally different recipes and i knew that wasn't how mama makes by looking at the picture. So i called mom and got her recipe. Thats my dinner tonight!
And for all you folks here is the recipe with a pic.
Mama’s killer pork vindaloo kerala style
½ kg – pork, cut in to small cubes. Small!
3 to 4 onions – finely diced
1 or 2 green chilly ( depending on how spicy you want it ) – finely sliced
½ an inch of ginger – finely sliced and crushed
10 cloves of garlic – finely sliced and crushed
the masala mix –
red chilly powder
a pinch of turmeric powder
dhaniya ( corriander ) powder
( note -Garam masala, dhaniya - take a table spoon each Pepper - 1 tea spoon Chilly powder - 1/2 teaspoon Turmeric powder - a pinch. ( this should give an idea of proportion. This is for people who don't like it spicy. If you are a true mallu add on a lil more of pepper and chilly powder)
mix the above ( collection 2 ) with 2 table spoon or so of vinegar
black mustard seeds powdered ( 1/2 teaspoon ) – if you can not find powder, wet it a bit and crush to get rid of its skin ( mom says that’s the way to get the flavor right )
Add Coconut oil ( I guess you could add any other sunflower oil types, but then hey this is kerala style )
Let is warm.
Add collection 1 starting with onions. Saute till onions are light brown.
Then add collection 2 and mix the two. Mix! let it all get mixed up! Add salt. Mix.
When its nicely mixed add the pork and mix. Mix.
If you prefer a bit more vinegar add a teaspoon at the most.
Pressure cook for about 22 minutes.
( Note - As to pressure cooking. Number of whistles might vary. But about 20 to 25 mins on low/med flame should have it cooked just fine. If you find you need the pork more tender after this, i would just cook it for another 5 mins more in the pressure cooker. I also like my pork tangy so I add half a tea spoon of vinegar at the end.)
Killer pork vindaloo ready!
