  • Pork – 1 kg

For Marination:

  • Chilli Powder – 1 1/2 tsp.
  • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp.
  •  Crushed Black Pepper – 1 tsp.
  • Crushed Ginger – 1 1/2 tsp.
  • Green Chilli – 2 (Whole)
  • Salt to taste
  • Water – 1/4 cup.

For Masala:

  • Shallots – 1/2 cup.
  • Onions – 1 1/2 cup(Sliced Finely)
  • Ginger – 1 1/2 tsp.(crushed)
  • Garlic – 1 1/2 tsp(crushed)
  • Chilli Powder – 1 tbsp.
  • Coriander powder – 3 tsp.
  • Garam Masala – 3 tsp.
  • Thengakothu (small sized coconut pieces) – 1/2 cup OR Grated Coconut – 1/2 cup(Fry on a pan,along with 2 tsp garam                                                                                                                                                                                               masala till brown,cool and powder)
  • Curry leaves – 2 sprig


  1. Marinate the pork with ingredients under “To marinate” and Pressure cook with water for 3 whistles or until cooked.
  2. When the Pressure releases,drain the water and keep aside.
  3. Drain the excess oil out of the pan. Don’t forget to do this. Otherwise the final dish would be very oily. I prefer using this oil to saute the onion and masala.
  4. Heat oil in a pan(I used the above obtained oil/Fat from the pork).Add the Shallots,Onions, ginger,garlic,Curry leaves and saute well till onions turn transparent.
  5. Now add the Chilli powder,Coriander powder and Garam Masala and saute well.If required, add more oil.
  6. Now add the cooked Pork to this a nd saute well so that the masala clings well to the Pork.
  7. Now add the Thengakothu or the fried powdered coconut powder to this and saute well on low flame for about 20 minutes till the colour changes to dark brown(Refer Pic).
  8. Transfer to serving Dish and Enjoy with Rice/Chapathis/Appam/Bread and Enjoy!
