Now add the cooked pork mix into the pan .Mix them thoroughly and add half a cup of water and the coconut milk.
Check the salt at this stage. :- Add the chopped potatoes (Optional).
Cover and cook till the spice permeates the pork.
Uncover and stir the mix untill the gravy becomes thick.
Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
:- Try this spicy curry with rice or chappati..
Tried it and turned out simply yummmmm! Very easy and tastes great :) thank you!
Turned out awesome! Couple of issues: you didn't mention when to add the corriander powder. And whether to cook the pork in the pressure cooker with some water or without... I am a newbie, so I took a chance by adding a cup of water while pressure cooking. So I didn't have to add any along with the coconut milk... Again, wonderful recipe. I'm sure it'll work equally well with mutton or with beef.
Thank you for this excellent recipe.
