Pork Pepper roast


Pork Pepper roast is a typical Christian recipe,more favourite for Christmas season after the lent.

Ingredients needed
  • 1Kg cleaned pork
  • ¾ dsp Chilli powder
  • ½ tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 dsp Coriander powder
  • 2 tsp Pepper powder
  • ½ tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Aniseed
  • 2 Cinnamon
  • 3 Cloves
  • 2 Cardamom pods
  • 8 Garlic
  • 2 tsp Ginger sliced
  • Curry leaves- 2 leaflets
  • 1 dsp Vinegar
  • Salt- to taste
  •  water-1 cup
  •   For Seasoning
  • ¼ cup oil
  • 1 cup button(small) onions



Cooking Method 
  • Wash and clean the pork. Cut into medium size pieces and keep in a large mixing bowl.
  • Heat all these  ingredients in a pan- ¾ dsp Chilli powder,1 dsp Coriander,1/2 tsp turmeric,1 tsp whole pepper kernel,1/2 tsp cumin,1 tsp aniseed,2 cinnamon,3 cloves,2 cardamom pod. Don’t burn it. Allow to cool the masala and grind it to make a paste
  • Marinate the cleaned meat with the freshly prepared masala paste and keep it for half an hour.
  • Transfer the marinated meat to a pressure cooker and add adequate amount of water(depends upon the quantity of cooker and meat).
  • I used a 3L cooker for cooking. Switch on the flame and wait for 3 whistles.
  • Switch off the flame and allow to stand  for reducing the pressure.
  • Take another pan, when it is hot  add ¼ cup oil(or you can add the fat layer formed  on  the top layer of cooked meat)So you can avoid extra oil.
  • When the oil gets hot add 1 cup of small button onions ,saute  and make it transluscent.Tip: You can sprinkle salt to the onion for making onion brown a little faster.
  • Add Ginger and Garlic paste or slices and roast it with onion.
  • Reduce the flame and add 1 tsp Garam masala powder(Grinded at home or available  in packets),1 dsp Meat masala powder.Mix all the masalas with onion.
  • When everything combines to form dry masala, add cooked pork with 3/4cup of gravy from the pressure cooker.
  • Mix thoroughly with all masalas,add 1dsp vinegar and make it dry in reduced flame
  • When the pork is  well coated with all masalas and little gravy, remove from fire and transfer it to a serving bowl.
  • Add crushed fresh pepper for more flavor.
  • Garnish with mint or cilantro or curry leaves.
  • Serve with any rice dishes.
