Double delicious pork curry! I made this as part of an Indian banquet, and this was the hit of the night. At step 5, mine was cooked in about an hour. Even though I covered the pan, I had to add a little water to keep the curry from sticking. My only ingredient changes were to double the fenugreek seeds and to use regular sugar as I couldn't find my packet of raw. Better go buy more as I will be making this often. Thanks for posting.
yummy! this had a wonderful smell as it was cooking. it was very tasty, and the flavors were even better the next day. i used sambal oelek in place of the chiles, and reduced the initial amount of oil by half, as i was using a nonstick pan. will be making this again!
If you like pork and you like curry, this is a fantastic recipe. The smell of it cooking is hard to take for two hours and the end result really lives up to all those great smells. I used pork scotch fillet and I think it resulted in the tenderest curry I have ever cooked. I served it with the suggested accompaniments then the next day served the leftovers with just a dollop of natural yoghurt on top. Yum.
