IPork is one of the cheapest meats we can buy in Australia so I am always on the lookout for ways to use it-especially curried. This one was a good one we thought.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Curry Paste:.
  2. Toast the coriander, fennel and peppercorns in a dry fry pan over medium heat until fragrant.
  3. Grind or use a mortar and pestle to crush to a powder.
  4. Put the garlic, ginger, onion and ground spices in a food processor and pulse until a paste is formed.
  5. Curry:.
  6. Add 2 tablespoons oil to a fry pan and brown the pork in batches. Remove to a plate.
  7. Add the remaining oil and heat; fry the spice paste for 3 to 4 minutes stirring often. Add the pork and stir well; add the water and bring to the boil.
  8. Season with salt to taste (I find curry needs quite a bit of salt so start with about 1 teaspoon), cover and simmer gently for 2 hours (add more water if the sauce becomes too thick).
  9. Pour off any excess oil and stir through the yogurt and coriander leaves.

This is delicious and was very easy to put together for a great weeknight dinner. The curry had a wonderful flavour. I have never made curry paste before, now I think I'll make it more often. I love to be able to whip up home made things like that and know exactly what I am feeding my family. Also, it's saves a few bucks from purchasing premade curry paste. This dish will be in my "favourites" cookbook. Thanks Jan! Made for Aussie Swap :)
